First Trailer for Sci-Fi Robot Dog Movie 'Axl' Starring Alex Neustaedter

"That's my dog - I want it back." Global Road Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Oliver Daly's new movie Axl, or A.X.L., about a giant robot dog that becomes friends with a teenager kid. It's inspired by classic 80's family sci-fi movies like Short Circuit and Flight of the Navigator, adapted directly from Daly's own short film Miles, and is more of a kids movie (or "family movie") than an edgy sci-fi concept or action movie like Michael Bay would make. Alex Neustaedter stars as Miles, along with Becky G, Dorian Kingi (as Axl), Eric Etebari, Niko Guardado, Patricia De Leon, Alex MacNicoll, and Madeline Bertani. This is a cheesy trailer with the music, but I have a feeling this might be a cool film - even though it's meant for younger audiences, seems like good fun. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Oliver Daly's Axl,

Flight Of The Navigator: Neill Blomkamp teases possible remake

Simon Brew Nov 23, 2017

The long-mooted remake of Flight Of The Navigator looks like it's back on...

A remake of Flight Of The Navigator, the 1986 sci-fi movie about a 12 year old boy who disappears for eight years and suddenly returns, has been on the Hollywood cards for some time.

Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World, was once working on the project, but admitted back in 2015 that it’d “moved on”. But now comes the news that District 9 director Neill Blomkamp appears to be involved.

Over the last few months, Blomkamp has been taken the covers off his Oats Studios, that’s been showcasing a series of impressive short movies. But now, on his Twitter account, he’s teased that a feature is on the way too.

Is Flight of the Navigator Remake Next for District 9 Director?

Is Flight of the Navigator Remake Next for District 9 Director?
It was announced in September that Disney's Flight of the Navigator remake was back on track. Lucifer showrunner John Henderson is penning the script for Lionsgate, with the partnering of the Henson Company. And now, it looks like director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) might be in talks to helm the project after a cryptic tweet earlier this week. Fans have been waiting decades for the remake to the 1986 sci-fi adventure to come into fruition and it finally looks like we may have lift off for Flight of the Navigator.

Neill Blomkamp started his Oats Studios as a creative offshoot for short films to be released online and took to Twitter earlier this week to announce that they were going to make a sequel to his short Adam and then left fans in suspense teasing what his next full-length project will be. The director tweeted.

Lucifer showrunner to write Flight of the Navigator reboot

It looks like Hollywood is set to take another crack at a reboot of the 80s sci-fi adventure Flight of the Navigator, with THR reporting that Joe Henderson, showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer, has signed on to pen the script for Lionsgate.

The 1986 movie, directed by Randal Kleiser (Grease), revolved around a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by a UFO, reappearing at exactly the same age eight years later, with no memories of his experiences. When Nasa spots a connection between the boy and a recovered UFO, the youngster escapes in the ship and sets off to reunite with his family and unravel the mystery.

In 2009, Disney attempted to remake the film and in 2012 Colin Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly were brought in to write a script, although the project ultimately failed to get off the ground.

Flight of the Navigator Remake Is Back on Track with Lucifer Showrunner
The Flight of the Navigator remake has been in various stages of development over the years, but now it seems like the project is about to hit lift off. The Hollywood Reporter announced that The Henson Company is producing the new reboot for Lionsgate and they have tapped Joe Henderson, the showrunner for Fox's Lucifer, to write the script. Disney tried to reboot Flight of the Navigator back in 2009 and then another time in 2012 with Colin Trevorrow attached to write and direct. Both projects never materialized for one reason or another, but now, 5 years later, the remake seems ready for flight.

The movie told of a 12-year-old Florida boy who is abducted by a UFO and reappears eight years later, at the exact same age and with no memories of what happened. When Nasa officials spot a connection between the boy and a recovered UFO and try to ensnare him,

‘Flight of the Navigator’ Reboot in the Works from ‘Lucifer’ Showrunner

While I remember liking Flight of the Navigator as a kid, it’s not a movie I’m precious about, and I certainly don’t think it’s above a remake. So I’m cautiously optimistic at Variety's report that Lionsgate and The Henson Company have tapped Lucifer showrunner Joe Henderson to write the screenplay for a new version of the 1986 adventure movie. For those who never saw it, the story follows a 12-year-old boy who gets knocked unconscious when walking through the woods in 1978. He awakens in 1986, still the same age and discovering …

It tells the story of 12-year-old David Scott Freeman, who gets knocked unconscious in the woods and wakes up eight years later the exact same age and with total amnesia about what happened in the warped time, while everyone else aged.
