Stop me if you've heard this before: children suddenly begin mysteriously gaining superpowers and are subsequently declared dangerous by the government. A group of teenagers forms a resistance...

Amandla Stenberg stars as Ruby, possibly the world's most powerful mutant superpowered teenager in a world where the government has decided to imprison teens who recently acquire mysterious abilities.

In addition to Stenberg, the film also stars This is Us actress Mandy Moore and Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie. Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who previously helmed Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3, makes her live-action directorial debut.

The Darkest Minds arrives in theaters August 3.  It will contend with Mission: Impossible - Fallout (July 27), Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (July 27), and Disney's Christopher Robin (August 3) at the box office.

The film is based on the Disney-published book series of the same name from author Alexandra Bracken.  Bracken also wrote the novelization of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. 





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.
