The rim of the World Movie Trailer Is Stranger Things With Alien Invaders

Netflix releases the action-packed Rim of the World trailer. Directed by McG, the science fiction adventure film blends summer camp camaraderie with an alien invasion storyline. The screenplay was written by Zack Stentz, who previously co-wrote the films Thor and X-Men: First Class, along with four episodes of The CW’s superhero series The Flash.

In Rim of the World, four misfit teenagers meet at the titular summer camp. Given the location, they’re at a disadvantage when aliens invade, thus forcing them to think out of the box. The kids receive a special key that will allow them to potentially end the invasion, but they must first embark on a journey without any parental help or adult supervision.

The rim of the World stars Jack Gore, Benjamin Flores Jr., Miya Cech, and Alessio Scalzotto as the protagonists, with Lynn Collins, Annabeth Gish, and Aquaman’s Michael Beach appearing in supporting roles.

Lynn Collins In John Carter

Lynn Collins, ‘John Carter’ Star, Cried While Reading The Script (In A Good Way)

After conducting three interviews with the principal players from “John Carter” — with this one, Lynn Collins, being the third — it’s hard to not come away with the notion that this wasn’t a particularly fun film shoot. Not that anyone didn’t get along with each other — and it’s obvious that both Taylor Kitsch and Collins love director Andrew Stanton — but the whole thing just sounds so… grueling.

Collins plays Dejah Thoris, the Princess of the city called Helium on the planet Mars, who attempts to enlist John Carter (Kitsch) — a man from Earth with superpowers — to fight with her against the enemies of her city. Here, Collins shares some tales about the shoot which, again, just do not sound like a particularly great time.

Lynn Collins Unabomber

Discovery’s new miniseries Manhunt: Unabomber, takes viewers back to the ’90s and follows the key players who worked to track down serial killer Ted Kaczynski. The eight-hour drama, airing on Tuesdays, stars Paul Bettany as Kaczynski, the domestic terrorist whose bombs killed three people and injured 23 others; Sam Worthington as Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald, the FBI agent who captured him; and Jane Lynch as Janet Reno.

Read on to find out how these and other cast members in Manhunt: Unabomber were influenced by their real-life counterparts.
For 24 years, the Unabomber lived in a secluded cabin in a remote area in Montana with no heat, no electricity, and no running water. It is here that he set up his workshop, the origin of the many homemade mail bombs that would later be distributed all over America, injuring 23 and killing three targeted citizens.

He was arrested at the cabin in 1996 and ultimately sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He is still serving in ADX Florence, a maximum-security prison in Colorado.

Bettany plays the paranoid schizophrenic murderer who instilled fear throughout the country with his letter-bombing campaign in the ’80s and ’90s. To prepare for this role, Bettany took time to himself in remote forest home, unplugged and secluded himself from the rest of the world, he told the Los Angeles Times.

“It allows you to go back in time and see this man who did monstrous things but who monstrous things also happened to,” Bettany explained before pointing to Kaczynski’s brilliance and questioning his peculiar choices in crime: “He could go and sabotage the system, blow up the Hoover Dam, whatever the … he wants to do. He’s that bright. But he doesn’t. Why?”

Lynn Collins Wonder Woman

I love ‘Wonder Woman.’ I love everything about ‘Wonder Woman.’ She’s an Amazon, she’s beautiful, she’s tough, she’s moral, she’s dating Superman, and she kills evil things. Wonder Woman is literally the perfect fictional woman. Growing up as a geek, Wonder Woman was my favorite fictional role model, not Barbie.

A fan-made short film by Rainfall Films reminded me just how badly we need a ‘Wonder Woman’ movie. It also made me ask myself why have we not seen anything Wonder Woman-esque since Linda Carter? Mind you Carter donned the skintight leotard in the late ’70s. In tv and movie land, that…was…a…long…time…ago.

First, there was ‘Smallville,’ then ‘Arrow. Now ‘The Flash’ is getting a tv series. Huh? To be fair ‘Boston Legal’ producer David E. Kelley did try to bring a ‘Wonder Woman’ series with Adriane Palicki to the small screen in 2011. But Kelley wasn’t a comic book fan. His ‘Wonder Woman’ was uncharacteristically campy and quickly canceled. The CW announced it was developing a ‘Wonder Woman’ series called ‘Amazon,’ but like the others, the series never came to fruition.

Joss Whedon tried his hand at a ‘Wonder Woman’ feature film in the mid-2000s, but DC never even returned his phone calls. After the second small screen attempt failed, Whedon explained that ‘Wonder Woman’ is just too “epic” for the small screen.

I know that Whedon meant well and Whedon is no stranger to strong female characters, but I have to disagree. Isn’t ‘Superman’ the definition of “epic?” Somehow ‘Smallville’ found an audience. And even if Whedon is correct and ‘Wonder Woman’ is too epic for the small screen, then why hasn’t there been a ‘Wonder Woman’ movie?

There have been not one, but two mediocre ‘Superman’ films over the last decade, an awful adaption of ‘Green Lantern,’ and an atrocious ‘Cat Woman’ movie (I limit the list to the DC Universe, as the Marvel Universe is a different animal). So I really don’t understand why there hasn’t been a ‘Wonder Woman’ film or tv series.

I got into a debate with another poster on a message board on this topic. The person I was debating claimed that ‘Wonder Woman’ didn’t have the brand recognition that ‘Superman’ and ‘Batman’ have. And to that, I say: Are you kidding me? ‘Wonder Woman’ is one of the big three: ‘Superman,’ ‘Batman,’ and ‘Wonder Woman.’

There has even been a love triangle between the three at some point. I would argue that ‘Wonder Woman’ has more brand recognition than ‘Cat Woman,’ the ‘Green Lantern,’ ‘The Green Arrow,’ or ‘The Flash’ COMBINED. Yet two of the four have already had films made about them. ‘The Flash’ series is in development. No one can convince me that ‘Wonder Woman’ doesn’t have the brand recognition to carry a film or a tv series. No one.

Lynn Collins JOHN CARTER Set Visit Interview

Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter is based on the novel A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Lynn Collins plays the novel’s eponymous princess, Dejah Thoris.  But rather than a damsel in distress waiting for the Earthman John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) to come to her rescue, she can hold her own and kick some ass.

When I went to the set of John Carter with some of my fellow movie bloggers, Collins spoke to us about her martial arts training, Dejah’s fighting style training, the three hours it takes to cover her body in intricate tattoos, what the tattoos mean, and more.  “John Carter” may be the title of the movie, but don’t be surprised if we’re paying just as much attention to the Princess of Mars.

LYNN COLLINS: I’ll let you see part of the costume. As you can see, there’s not much of it. The tattoos are being rubbed off because of the armor. Here’s the armor. A beautiful breastplate. So yeah, hit me. It’s amazing.

It feels so different. It’s like we’re in a different movie now. We shot for three months in a green screen in London. Now that we’re outdoors and dealing with the natural elements, it’s totally different. Utah and Arizona, this area that we’re in is just awe-inspiring. There’s an unforgiving beauty to it all. It was helping me, I’m sure, get into it more.

We hear you did some sword-fighting. How are you enjoying the staged combat?

COLLINS: Several sword-fighting scenes! I’m a trained martial artist. My parents were both martial artists. I came into this project with a little extra Umph. I’ve been boxing with my trainer and there’s something so gratifying wielding the sword.

We just don’t have that in this day and age unless you’re going to the renaissance fair and getting dressed up. It’s so empowering and fantastic. The people that are coaching and teaching me are just wonderful. Andrew Stanton, he’s so wonderful and created such a great group that everything is so fun.

Do you have a lot of mobility with that armor?

COLLINS: You know, they have several different pieces. This is the classic version and they’ve got a hero version which is metal. They’ve had to adjust the arms, which are detachable so that I can move.

One of the things about Dejah — and I don’t know if this makes sense to you all — is that, when she’s fighting, she’s operating on a diagonal so that it doesn’t look like a normal sort of fight. It’s sort of on a spin. We had to adjust because it was rubbing me raw. As you can see, it’s rubbing the tats right off.

Can you talk about the tattoos and what they mean for your character?

COLLINS: Yeah, the makeup people decided that the red men would, instead, be these beautiful tattoos. And then you can see my blood. We’ve got blue blood as red men. Instead of painting people crimson.

Nobody looks good that way. Everyone, instead, has what I call a “hyper-tan” with different shades and hues that separate them from Taylor’s character, who is all white.

What’s the prep time when you come to set?

COLLINS: Three and a half hours. Underneath this, I have freckles and very light eyes that aren’t blue. They’re green. And my hair is a dirty, dusty blonde. It’s really so fun to go through this transformation every day.

I could complain about the hours but, when everything is said and done, I look in the mirror and think that this is what I dream about. Playing characters that are benevolent, powerful females.  They’re doing such a great job making the image something that everybody can bite into.

Can you talk a little about your character?

COLLINS: Yeah, Dejah Thoris is the regent of science and letters on Helium, which is sort of the peaceful city of Mars. But she’s also the Princess of Helium. That’s sort of revealed in the movie. There’s an incredible masculine/feminine combination that I’m working with.

It’s just dealing with that personally, myself. Every role that you accept makes you grow in some way. It’s part of the creative process. She’s just a benevolent, powerful feminine force. I feel like I’ll be able to take so much of that away with me and filter that into the next roles I play.

She’s not just a princess that the prince fights for her?

COLLINS: No, she gets right into the fights. And may fight even better.

What’s the interaction like with the actors wearing motion-capture suits?

COLLINS: Oh, it’s fantastic. Their job is so difficult, especially here. It’s one thing to be against a green screen in London. To be out here in this environment in the green suits must be so difficult for them. But Samantha and Polly and Willem and Thomas — what they’re doing is really so difficult. They’re having to create these characters that have multiple arms. They have to rely on so much. We have to rely on so much as well. Really, creativity is blossoming on this set. Because we don’t have a choice! (laughs)

How is the acting against looking at the fake head?

COLLINS: I’m horrible at it! We keep doing takes and everyone keeps pointing above his face. “Look up! Look up!” It’s really difficult. Especially because these actors are so fine. I want to be engaging with their faces! I don’t want to look at the grey head. When they’re on stilts, it’s a lot easier.
