Rim of the World is an epic action-adventure directed by McG.
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.
Whenever I see a teenage angst film rooted in Sci-Fi (especially from Netflix) I immediately think of Stranger Things. While Rim of the World doesn’t appear to go full on Stranger Things it does seem to follow a similar formula and have moments of nostalgic things woven into the trailer. Since it is directed by McG and not the Duffer Brothers this is more action packed and in your face than the subtle of Stranger Things.

RIM OF THE WORLD will release globally on Netflix May 24th.
