WATCH: The People Behind Stranger Things Are Back With a New Adventure Movie
And it's got everything you love about the show.
(SPOT.ph) It's been a while since was last heard from Eleven and the gang from Stranger Things. But while the kids are busy kissing in dances and trapping demogorgons, the producers of the show have also been busy working on another sci-fi adventure called The Darkest Minds. The movie is actually based on a book of the same name by Alexandra Bracken.
The Darkest Minds follows a group of teens who mysteriously start to develop powers. Considering them to be a dangerous threat, the government detains them in a facility. But being the strong and rebellious kids that they are, they escape the camp along with the especially gifted 16-year-old Ruby played by Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games).
Group of teenagers? Check. Incredibly powerful young girl who has trouble controlling her abilities and escapes a government facility? Check. A bunch of friends-turned-family running around trying to outsmart the adults around them? Yup, you got it! So, if you can't wait until the next season of Stranger Things, you can catch The Darkest Minds when it hits theaters on August 1.
