Miller, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver star. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs.

In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
What we think about the movie
It is an action movie that kids and boys are going to love. The acting is not the best, but you will get the booms, loud sounds and explosions that will keep you glued to your seat. The visual effects and sound effects are great. You can feel your seat shaking when the auto-bots are fighting the Decepticons.
The actors are all new. There is new bad guys and there is a lot of action, which will keep little ones entertained. It is a little long. I though at one point the movie had ended, and then the action picked up again. But I am sure my son is going to love it, and I can just picture him asking me to get the Dino-bots toys.

Earth to Echo in theaters July 2, 2014
Last week my son and I were invited to the blogger event for the movie Earth to Echo and one of the highlights of the event was the fact that my son was going to be a junior reporter and was going to have the honor of interviewing the cast of the movie: Teo Halm, Reese Hartwig, Brian "Astro" Bradley and Ella Linnea Wahlestedt
After a great night that including watching the movie at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood and relaxing at the hotel, my son prepared a few questions and although he was a little nervous about the experience the actors were so nice and friendly that we all felt at ease. Here it is the interview so you can get to meet the cast of the movie a little better.
The parent bloggers met Director Dave Green, Screenplay writer Henry Gayden and producer Andrew Panay. We learned a few "secrets" about the movie such as the fact that they found the cast only 5 days before they started shooting and that they filmed the movie in 28 days (more like nights) and they has reduced opportunity to shoot since the actors are minors and they are only allowed to work for a certain period of time.
The movie is all about friendship and some moments are inspired by memories of the director, writer and producer while they were growing up.
