The Fault in Our Stars opens on June 6 and tells the story of the relationship between Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort), two teenage cancer survivors. Having seen the movie, I say this to you: Bring your damn Kleenex,” says Kate Aurthur, part of the BuzzFeed Staff. The bestselling book stars young Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, two similar teenagers that fall in love when they needed it the most. Both have been troubled with illness and meet each other at a cancer support group. Both teenagers see the world very different from others, and their love takes them on the journey of their lifetime.

Shailene Woodley, playing Hazel Grace Lancaster was cast in the lead role of Amy Juergens in The Secret Life of the American Teenager in 2008 and in 2011 she had her big screen breakthrough when she played in Alexander Payne‘s The Descendants in 2011. Her performance in the role of Alexandra King brought critical recognition by the movie industry. She won an Independent Spirit Award and the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Breakthrough Performance Award, and had a Golden Globe nomination. Ansel Elgort, playing Augustus Waters made his film debut in the horror remake Carrie in 2013 and co-stared with Shailene Woodley in Divergent (playing her character’s brother.) Ansel will also have a role in Jason Reitman‘s film, Men, Women & Children.

The Fault in Our Stars has become the most “liked” trailer on Youtube. This usually means the movie will be very successful in the box office, and in advertisements. Already, you can buy shirts, hoodies, pants, posters, ect., related to the Fault in Our Stars. The movie is also getting much hype due to the fact that both actors played a role in the hit movie, Divergent. Some say the movie will be one greatest romance movies yet this year to come to theaters and will fall right into place with all the classic chick flicks that we all craze about. The theaters are sure to be sold out and packed with adoring fans of the book. Many teens have fallen in love with John Greens story of love, death, and illness, and cannot wait to finally see the story told again on the big screen.
