Sci-Fi Thriller 'The Darkest Minds' First Trailer Mashes 'The Hunger Games' And 'X-Men'

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for The Darkest Minds, a sci-fi thriller based on the young adult novel of the same name by Alexandra Bracken.

This dystopian tale is set in a time when teens mysteriously develop powerful new abilities and 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.

Produced by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Dan Levine (Arrival), The Darkest Minds is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2) and stars Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games), Mandy Moore (Tangled), Gwendoline Christie (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Harris Dickinson and Skylan Brooks.
