Superpowered Teenagers Unleash Resistance in “The Darkest Minds” Trailer
From the producers of Strange Things and 20th Century Fox comes a YA adaptation that may be more fitting for current times than any other we have seen. The Darkest Minds is a movie about teenagers who have abilities and are being contained by adults who want to control them. That may sound like X-Men but the plot is very different from that franchise.
Ruby, played by Amandla Stenberg, is a sixteen year old girl who is the most powerful amongst her teen peers and along with her group of friends tries to run away. But they end up fighting back since running does not seem to be solving their problems. Last week, a movement was started in the US called March for Our Lives in which teenagers protested against politicians who refused to adapt gun laws to ensure their safety after a series school mass shootings. This movie is perfectly timed for the current political climate and seems to hit the point right. It will be out in cinemas on August 3rd.
