20th Century Fox has released a new preview for The Darkest Minds, opening in theaters on August 3.
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.
The film stars Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, Gwendoline Christie, Harris Dickinson, Skylan Brooks, Miya Cech, Patrick Gibson, Golden Brooks, Wallace Langham, Bradley Whitford, and Mark O’Brien.
The Darkest Minds was directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson from a script by Chad Hodge, based on the novel by Alexandra Bracken. Shawn Levy and Dan Levine produced the movie.
