LOS ANGELES, May 18 — Global Road Entertainment has released a new trailer for family sci-fi adventure A.X.L.

The film stars Alex Neustaedter, BeckyG and Alex MacNicoll. Neustaedter plays an out of luck teen who stumbles upon a robotic military dog with whom he forms an unlikely bond much to the dismay of the scientists who created the robotic dog.

The synopsis of the film reads: “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 (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 (BeckyG), to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.”

A.X.L. is set for release on August 24. Watch the trailer below:
