After discovering it in an abandoned junkyard, a teenage dirt bike rider develops a strong friendship with a large robot dog -- yeah, that's right ... a large robot dog!

Check out the trailer for "A-X-L," an upcoming teen adventure movie starring Alex Neustaedter (from the sci-fi series "Colony") as a young motorcyclist whose life is upended when he befriends a highly-intelligent military-grade robot that has been designed to look like a very large Doberman Pinscher. Think: "The Iron Giant" meets the 1979 cult film "C.H.O.M.P.S."

Co-starring "Power Rangers" star Becky G and Thomas Jane (The Expanse, The Mist), the film is written and directed by newcomer Oliver Daly, based off his 2015 proof-of-concept short film "Miles."

"A-X-L" will be released in the summer, beginning August 24th.

synopsis:
In the vein of classic '80s family movies SHORT CIRCUIT and FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR, A.X.L. is a new adventure about a down-on-his luck teenage bike rider, Miles (Alex Neustaedter), who stumbles upon an advanced, robotic, military dog named A.X.L. Endowed with next-generation artificial intelligence but with the heart of a dog, A.X.L. forms an emotional bond with Miles, much to the chagrin of the rogue military scientists who created A.X.L. and would do anything to retrieve him. Knowing what is at stake if A.X.L. gets captured, Miles teams up with his smart, resourceful crush, Sara (Becky G), to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.
