20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for The Darkest Minds – a new film from director Jennifer Yuh Nelson. Based upon the novel by Alexandra Bracken, the movie stars Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie.

Here’s the official description:

“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 realises 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 Darkest Minds hits cinema screens in August.
