20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for THE DARKEST MINDS trailer, based on Alexandra Bracken’s YA novel of the same name.
Jennifer Yu Nelson directs the near-future dystopian film where a disease has killed off 98 percent of children. Those who did survive begin to develop powers they have no idea how to control and the government deems them dangerous. The film centers on Ruby (Amandla Stenberg), a sixteen-year-old who might be the most powerful among all her peers when teens start mysteriously developing new abilities. When she and her friends realize running isn’t enough, they start a resistance against the adults who betrayed them. The film looks very much in the vein of the X-Men universe, which comes from the same studio.
Also starring is Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie. The Darkest Minds hits theaters August 3, check out the trailer below.
