Last week, we shared the news that director McG's "campers vs. alien invaders" film RIM OF THE WORLD will be released through the Netflix streaming service on May 24th. Now a trailer has arrived online to confirm that release date and give us a look at the adventure the young characters at the center of the story are forced to go on as they battle aliens… and the aliens' alien dogs.

Written by Zack Stentz, whose previous credits include THOR, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, and episodes of The Flash, RIM OF THE WORLD tells the following story: 

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.

Lynn Collins, Annabeth Gish, Michael Beach, Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr., King Bach, Alessio Scalzotto, Tony Cavalero, Rudy Mancuso, Carl McDowell, Chris Wylde, David Theune, Punam Patel, and Jason Rogel star.

McG served as producer alongside Mary Viola, Susan Solomon, and Matt Smith, with Stentz, Brad Mendelsohn, Steven Bello, and Corey Marsh executive producing.

RIM OF THE WORLD is undoubtedly aimed at a younger audience, but it looks like it might have enough action and humor to keep adults entertained as well.
