This month sees McG return to Netflix to brave the Rim of the World. The action blockbuster, written by Zack Stentz, follows four misfit teens at a summer camp that is invaded by aliens, forcing the young adults to come of age, overcome their insecurities, learn to work as a team and, oh yeah, save the world.
The film stars Jack Gore (The Kids Are Alright), Miya Cech (The Darkest Minds), Benjamin Flores Jr. (Transformers: The Last Knight), Alessio Scalzotto (Genius: Picasso), Lynn Collins (Manhunt: Unabomber), Annabeth Gish (The X-Files) and Michael Beach (Aquaman). Now, we have our first look at the cast in action, with the first trailer for the movie unveiled by Netflix. While the prospect of a sci-fi flick from the director of Charlie’s Angels 2: Full Throttle might have some skeptical, the project marks McG’s second with Netflix, following The Babysitter, a horror comedy that saw a return to form, delivering the helmer’s best film in a decade. With its Attack the Block-at-summer camp vibe, this could well turn out to be a surprise summer hit.
Rim of the World is released worldwide on Netflix on Friday 24th May. Here’s the trailer:
Rim of the World is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
McG lines up cast for Netflix’s Rim of the World
21st June 2018
McG is lining up the cast for his new Netflix original film, Rim of the World.
The sci-fi actioner follows a group of misfit teens at a summer camp that is invaded by aliens, forcing the young adults to come of age, overcome their insecurities, learn to work as a team and, oh yeah, save the world.
Now, McG has found the teens to lead the ensemble cast, with Jack Gore (The Kids Are Alright), Miya Cech (The Darkest Minds), Benjamin Flores Jr. (Transformers: The Last Knight), Alessio Scalzotto (Genius: Picasso), Lynn Collins (Manhunt: Unabomber), Annabeth Gish (The X-Files) and Michael Beach (Aquaman) all set to star in the project. They’ll be joined by Tony Cavalero (School of Rock), musician Rudy Mancuso, Carl McDowell (Ballers) Chris Wylde (The Babysitter), David Theune (The Mad Ones), Punam Patel (Alone Together) and Jason Rogel (Kevin From Work).
Also joining the cast is King Bach (pictured), who is reuniting with McG, after his role in horror comedy The Babysitter. Indeed, the film also brings together McG and Netflix again, after the Charlie’s Angels and Terminator Salvation director inked a deal to release The Babysitter directly on the streaming service. The film is written by Zack Stentz, who has also penned X-Men First Class, Thor, episodes of The Flash and Andromeda.
McG reunites with Netflix for Rim of the World
21st March 2018
McG is reuniting with Netflix for a new sci-fi film, Rim of the World.
The director of Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation and This Means War is no stranger to the small screen, with shows such as Lethal Weapon and an upcoming adaptation of True Lies on his CV. However, he’s also no stranger to Netflix, with both When We First Met and The Babysitter released directly on the streaming service, produced by his company, Wonderland.
While time-travelling rom-com When We First Met was met by underwhelmed reviews, The Babysitter, which was directed by McG, received a rave review from us, praising it as his best film in over a decade. Now, that form will hopefully be maintained as Deadline reports he’s once again preparing to helm a film for Netflix.
Written by Zack Stentz, the sci-fi follows four misfit teens at a summer camp that is invaded by aliens, forcing the young adults to come of age, overcome their insecurities, learn to work as a team and, oh yeah, save the world.
McG is also producing alongside Mary Viola, and Circle of Confusion’s Matt Smith and Susan Solomon. Stentz and Circle of Confusion’s Brad Mendelsohn are on exec-producing duties.
