The Darkest Minds — Trailer


added: Wed, Mar 28th '18

Teenage kids with superpowers are being hunted down by an overly aggressive government in the first trailer for "The Darkest Minds."

Based on the first installment in Alexandra Bracken's best-selling YA novel series and hailing from the producers of "Stranger Things" and "Arrival," the upcoming action thriller stars Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games, Everything Everything) as a 16-year-old girl named Ruby, who years ago developed powerful superhuman abilities after surviving a mysterious virus that had nearly wiped out the entire children population.

Now considered as a national security threat, Ruby and other kids like her have been placed in brutal rehabilitation camps. But when Ruby manages to escape, she joins a group of teenage runaways who eventually form a large-scale rebellion.

Co-starring This is Us' Mandy Moore, Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, Harris Dickinson, and Skylan Brooks, "The Darkest Minds" is the live-action debut from acclaimed animation director Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3).

Written for the screen by TV writer-producer Chad Hodge (Wayward Pines, Good Behavior) and produced by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Dan Levine (Arrival), "The Darkest Minds" is slated for an August 3rd theatrical release.

When teens mysteriously develop powerful new abilities, they are declared a threat by the government and detained. Sixteen-year-old Ruby, one of the most powerful young people anyone has encountered, escapes her camp and joins a group of runaway teens seeking safe haven. Soon this newfound family realizes that, in a world in which the adults in power have betrayed them, running is not enough and they must wage a resistance, using their collective power to take back control of their future.
