Netflix looks to be cashing in on the success of Stranger Things seeing as the streaming giant is gearing up for an all-new original flick titled, Rim of the World.

Directed by McG, who helmed both the Charlie’s Angels films as well as Terminator Salvation, Rim of the World centers around a group of kids who aim to save the world from an alien invasion during summer camp. Fans of British cult classic Attack the Block and Super 8 may also take a liking to the film as it features a similar scenario and comedic vibes.

Additionally, the script was written by Zach Stentz who is known for his work on Thor and X-Men: First Class. Rim of the World stars Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr., Alessio Scalzotto, and Andrew Bachelor and lands on Netflix May 24. Check out the official synopsis below:

“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.”

In more entertainment news, the original Avengers: Endgame title was a bit of a spoiler.
