If you’ve ever seen the British drama series Misfits, you love a good story about kids spontaneously gaining superpowers. But what happens if the government decides they’re a threat to the rest of the world and tries to capture them?
That’s what we get with The Darkest Minds, which is based on Alexandra Bracken’s YA book series of the same name. Bracken is also known for A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy, a retelling of the first Star Wars film.
It looks like Darkest Minds is going to be a great production, seeing as one of the producers is Stranger Thing‘s Shawn Levy. It arrives in theaters August 3. Check out the trailer below:
