What would happen if a mysterious illness wiped out most children – and those that survived developed magical powers? They’re declared a threat and are rounded up by the government. When sixteen-year-old Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) escapes her camp, she joins a group of other teens on the run in a fight for their lives.
That’s the premise for the upcoming movie The Darkest Minds, based on the book by Alexandra Bracken. With a cast that stars Amandla Stenberg (Everything Everything, The Hunger Games) as Ruby, and includes Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones), it’s clear that Fox has high hopes for this movie – and we do too.
This trailer is packed with action and some seriously mind-blowing special effects. If you haven’t yet picked up Alexandra Bracken’s book, now would be a good time to check it out.
The Darkest Minds hits theaters on August 3rd, 2018.
