20th Century Fox has released the first action-packed trailer for The Darkest Minds, a Stranger Things meets X-Men imitation based on Alexandra Bracken’s popular young adult sci-fi series of the same name. Seriously, all they really needed to do was add some yellow and blue and we’d have another X-Men superhero film. Regardless, it still looks pretty cool.

The Darkest Minds Trailer

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.

The film stars Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, and Gwendoline Christie.

The Darkest Minds will hit theatres on August 3, 2018.
