I know The Darkest Minds is based on the first of a series of novel by author Alexandra Bracken, but given it’s being done by 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the X-Men films, I can’t help feeling this will come off as generic. I mean young kids who develop abilities and become hunted by the government? Come on!
We’ll find out when the film hits theaters on August 3rd, but for now check out the final trailer for the film titled “What Happens Next?”:
The Darkest Minds stars Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, and Gwendoline Christie. It is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson.
