1. SOUNDBITE (English) Nick Robinson/Actor, on his best summer ever: "My best summer was actually I believe it was fifth grade going into sixth -- maybe third going into fourth -- but my school was doing renovations so we actually -- our summer was from June to October. And it was awesome. The construction went over so there were like two months extra of summer. It was really cool."

(Reporter: "And what did you do with it?")

Robinson: "Um. Lots of -- shit, I don't know. Six-year-old blackout. I don't know. I hung out with friends and I just remember it seeming like an eternity. Just a never-ending summer, which was really cool."

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Gabriel Basso/Actor, on his best summer ever: "I went up to my dad's -- this is just one of my favorites -- I went up to an island that my family, not rents out but we own through my great-, great-grandfather in Michigan, in Lake Huron. And all of the men in the family go up there. It was like I turned I think 8 or 9, which is the age that you're allowed to go up there. It was really cool because I had never been up there. It was really cool to just see everything. I got to shoot guns. We swam, we have the lake. It was amazing."

(Reporter: "It's one of those things where you're a man now?")

Basso: "Yeah. Sort of. At 9 years old. Yeah. I remember my dad asked me to come up and I was like, 'Yes!' It was awesome."

(Reporter: "You fish?")

Basso: "Yeah, you fish, you hunt, you swim. There are no electronics allowed. So it's just like a cabin. There's no plumbing. There's an outhouse. That was an experience. You pump your water. It's pretty amazing."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Moises Arias/Actor, on his best summer ever: "No, I think the -- I can't think of a particular summer. They all kind of clash together. But I think going back to Atlanta for a month during the summer. Maybe one or two years ago, I was probably 17 or 16, something like that. I just remember -- we have a house out there with acreage, dirt biking, pool, women in bikinis. I just think that that was a great time, being able to spend with my family and friends. Yeah I think that was the dopest summer."

'KINGS OF SUMMER' ACTORS ON BEST SUMMERS EVER

Best. Summer. Ever.

That's at least the goal for the three teens in the indie coming-of-age movie "The Kings of Summer." They run away from home for the season to live in a house in the woods they've built themselves.

For the three teen actors who star in the film, they key ingredients to a quality summer differ: From girls in bikinis to hunting.

"My best summer was actually I believe it was fifth grade going into sixth," said Nick Robinson. "My school was doing renovations so we actually -- our summer was from June to October. And it was awesome. The construction went over so there were like two months extra of summer. It was really cool."

For Gabriel Basso, it was a trip to a family-owned island in Michigan, where his male relatives spent time hunting, fishing and swimming.

"It was like I turned I think 8 or 9, which is the age that you're allowed to go up there. It was really cool because I had never been up there. It was really cool to just see everything. I got to shoot guns," he said. "You fish, you hunt, you swim. There are no electronics allowed. So it's just like a cabin. There's no plumbing. There's an outhouse. That was an experience. You pump your water. It's pretty amazing."

But for former "Hannah Montana" actor Moises Arias, the best summers were back home at his family's house in Atlanta.

"Maybe one or two years ago, I was probably 17 or 16, something like that. I just remember -- we have a house out there with acreage, dirt biking, pool, women in bikinis. I just think that that was a great time, being able to spend with my family and friends. Yeah I think that was the dopest summer," he said.

"The Kings of Summer" is set to open in limited release in the US on 31 May.
