Actors Becky G and Alex Neustaedter talk with Jesus Figueroa, @Thisfunktional of thisfunktional.com, about their roles in “A.X.L.”
Becky G and Neustaedter talk about having fun while on the set and there possibly being some kind of artificial intelligence like A.X.L. as soon as 5 years from now. Becky G talked about growing up dirt bike and ATV riding, while Neustaedter found an appreciation for motocross because of this role.
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 (BeckyG), to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.
