So what if you took E.T., sprinkled in a little Batteries Not Included, and then made it a found footage movie? This appears to be the answer. From the trailer, this looks to me like I movie I’m going to wish they didn’t make as found footage. The story looks like it will be good and the storytelling glimpses you get from the trailer are solid, but the found footage feels totally like a gimmick and not like an advantage to the movie like it did in say, Cloverfield. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I think it will get in the way of a good movie.
