The first trailer for Netflix’s Rim of the World has a Stranger Things/Super 8 vibe. Four kids at camp are forced into action when Earth is attacked by creatures from outer space. The nearly three minute trailer mixes action, sci-fi, comedy, and drama as the kids discover there aren’t any responsible adults around to save them.
Rim of the World is set to premiere on May 24, 2019.
The cast of the thriller includes Jack Gore (The Kids Are Alright, Billions), Miya Cech (The Darkest Minds), Benjamin Flores Jr. (Game Shakers, Transformers: The Last Knight), Alessio Scalzotto (Genius: Picasso), and Andrew Bachelor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before). Tony Cavalero (The Dirt, School of Rock), Rudy Mancuso, Carl McDowell (Ballers), Chris Wylde (When We First Met, The DUFF), David Theune (The Mad Ones), Punam Patel (Alone Together, Adam Ruins Everything), Michael Beach (Patriots Day), Jason Rogel (Kevin From Work), Lynn Collins (Manhunt: Unabomber, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), and Annabeth Gish (The X-Files, Halt and Catch Fire) also star in the alien invasion drama.
Zack Stentz wrote the screenplay. McG (Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation) directed and served as a producer with Mary Viola, Susan Solomon-Shapiro and Matt Smith. Steven Bello, Corey Marsh, Zack Stentz and Brad Mendelsohn executive produced.
Rim of the World is the third film of McG’s Wonderland and Netflix partnership.
“Summer camp at Rim of the World has barely begun when four misfit teenagers — Alex, ZhenZhen, Dariush, and Gabriel — find they’ve got bigger problems to face than learning how to canoe and climb ropes when aliens suddenly invade the planet. Alone in a campground once teeming with people, the kids are unexpectedly entrusted with a key that carries the secret to stopping the invasion. Without any adults or electronics to help guide the way, it’s clear what they must do: band together, conquer their fears, and save the world.”
