Netflix has today released both the poster and the trailer for its upcoming sci-fi adventure film Rim of the World, which centers on an alien invasion that takes place during a group of young friend's summer camp vacation. You can check out both below.
While the trailer looks like it could be fun, I can't help but notice the rather shoddy CGI effects, which is kind of a bummer considering McG's previous Netflix film ,The Babysitter, was a blast, but I'll reserve harsh judgement until after I see the film.
"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."
Rim of the World stars Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr., Alessio Scalzotto and Andrew Bachelor.
Directed by McG from a script by Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class). McG also produces alongside Mary Viola, Susan Solomon-Shapiro and Matt Smith. Stentz, Steven Bello, Corey Marsh, and Brad Mendelsohn executive produce.
The film will premiere on on May 24th.
