On behalf of Relativity Media, we are pleased to share the newÂ “Code: Echo”Â initiative, inspired by their upcoming feature filmÂ EARTH TO ECHO-opening in theaters everywhere on July 2nd, 2014! With support from Code.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to making computer science more available in schools, Relativity has just launched a new challenge for students across the country to use code to create a game inspired byÂ EARTH TO ECHO.Â
Coding is the basic concept of computer programming, and what is used to create software, apps and websites. With “Code: Echo”, students are challenged to create their own games using code-instead of playing what’s already out there.Â Kids can visit www.codeechomovie.com to participate, and test themselves in three different categories: Best Story Tie In, Best Puzzle Game and Best Action Game.Â
Prepare for the journey of a lifetime when EARTH TO ECHO opens nationwide on July 2nd, 2014!

Tuck, Munch and Alex are a closely bonded trio of inseparable friends, but their time together is coming to an end. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys find a cryptic signal has infected their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on and looking for one final adventure together, they set off to trace the messages to their source and discover something beyond their wildest imaginations: hiding in the darkness is a mysterious being, stranded on Earth, and wanted by the government. This launches the boys on an epic journey full of danger and wonder, one that will test the limits of their friendship and change all of their lives forever.
