Prior to the US premiere of The Gifted on 2nd October, FOX have released the first 6 minutes of the opening episode.

In the 6 minute clip, members of the mutant underground network – including our very own Sean Teale who plays Marcos/Eclipse – endeavour to help an on-the-the-run stranger, Clarice/Blink, escape authorities, even though doing so may land one of them locked up.

The new Marvel series, written and directed by Matt Nix and Bryan Singer, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. It is a story of survival and family, a story of mutants coming to terms with who they are and parents accepting the fact that their kids aren’t who they thought they were – even if all of their lives are at risk because of it.

The UK premiere of The Gifted will be on Sunday 8th October at 9pm on FOX UK.
