Netflix dropped a first-look trailer for “Rim of the World,” a new YA sci-fi film coming to the platform in May. Directed by McG (The Babysitter, Terminator Salvation) the film stars Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr., Alessio Scalzotto, and Andrew Bachelor.
Written by Zack Stentz and produced by McG, Mary Viola, Susan Solomon-Shapiro, and Matt Smith, the film starts at a summer camp where we meet four misfit teens. When aliens suddenly invade the planet, the kids find themselves alone in a campground and are unexpectedly entrusted with a key that carries the secret to stopping the invasion.
Netflix teased the film adding, “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.”
Steven Bello, Corey Marsh, Zack Stentz and Brad Mendelsohn served as executive producers on the film, which launches on Netflix on May 24th. Fans of the genre can watch the official trailer below.

As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive. The series is a modern take on Lord of the Flies.
