Us Rating: ***

This suspenseful, funny 1979-set sci-fi flick echoes E.T. as Joe (Joel Courtney) and his pals accidentally film a mysterious train wreck while shooting a homemade movie. Suddenly, an alien threatens their Ohio town -- and the boys' friendship. Kyle Chandler enforces order as Joe's lawman dad, and Elle Fanning catapults from child star to romantic heroine as a troubled teen. (Paramount, $30)
