20th Century Fox has premiered the first trailer for the upcoming drama The Fault in Our Stars adapted from John Green's novel of the same name starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort (Divergent) as azel and Gus, two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

The film co-stars and was directed by Josh Boone from a script written by Scott Neustadter (500 Days of Summer). The film will be released in theaters on June 6.

    Looks pleasant enough.

    I really love this book,and the trailer makes me think this will be a worthy adaptation. Shailene Woodley continues to impress me.

  • Charles Ritter

    Could this trailer be anymore of a carbon copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer? I went back and watched Perks trailer afterwards and its the exact same beats and tones. Not to say I didn't enjoy it tho. Good choice to leave out the last third of the book in the trailer.

    Woodley looks stellar.

    I can pretty much guarantee you I will cry during this movie.

    I hope this one turns out well! Also, I don't mean to be a snob, but I believe her name is Hazel.

    The book was amazing, I can't wait to see this. Hope it's like Perks.

    I liked TFIOS (the book) better than Perks (the book) and I felt that the Perks movie adaptation lost something in translation. Judging from this trailer, it looks like they have nailed the look and feel of the book. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    • TheOneWhoKnocks

      PERKS is one of those few books which I like less and less the more I read it. Same goes for the movie, even though it's still a strong coming-of-age story. If anything, it helped reignite the genre.

      • Tony L

        The way the book is written (as a series of letters) makes it hard to translate to film. And I think they botched the part about him being molested. If you hadn't have read the book, I think it would have been to easy to misunderstand what was happening.

    Looks like a nice, heartwarming film; however, I wish the trailer (and possibly the film) played it a little straighter. No need for all the cheesy lines about infinity and oblivion. Still, I'm willing to let my inner pessimist take a back seat in order to enjoy this film.

    I really liked the book and I'm really looking foward to see the movie, specially after I read that the screenplay is from the same guys of The Spectacular Now, which was one of my favorite movies of 2013.

    I read the book and enjoyed it, but I definitely think it's one of John Green's lesser works. The trailer looks a little cheesy but I think the movie itself looks pretty solid.

      I thought it was one of his lesser works to. I think Looking For Alaska is maybe his best. But not as film friendly as this one.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/kieran/ Kieran

        Agreed! Looking for Alaska and Will Grayson, Will Grayson are my personal favourites.

          I haven't read that one yet so I'll check it out!

    I wasn't a huge fan of the book, it was decent though. My main problem was the main guy, Augustus, wasn't all that realistic. However, knowing it's in the hands of the writer of (500) Days of Summer and the Spectacular Now, and having watched the trailer, I'm hopeful that the characters personalities will balance a little better than they did in the book. Shailene looks great in this, looking forward to her giving another great performance!

    This actually looks pretty good. Wasn't even on my radar, but after watching the trailer, it's safe to say I'll see it in theaters.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/kathrynlynn/ kathrynlynn

    I love Woodley and thought she was a really interesting pick for this role, and even though I didn't like the movie Carrie I found Elgort to be charming. The book has some really great themes, and runs some really great questions to the audience through these characters and I'm hoping that trumps in the film.

    Thought the book was fantastic, trailer seems... good? Not overly wowed, seemed safe. But then again, I'm not gonna judge it just on the trailer.

  • TheOneWhoKnocks

    Loved the book quite a bit. Here's hoping that the movie delivers. Boone's only other film is STUCK IN LOVE, which received mixed reviews. It might be my inherent cynicism, but I like how the trailer starts off really sappy, then starts to go off in an unsappy direction, and then ends with even more sappiness.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/JNFilms/ JN Films

      I saw Stuck in Love and it was pretty good. The thing that held it back from being great was some dependency on cliches and convention in the script which he wrote. Boone's direction was pretty good and definitely fits for this.

    Talk about sappy romances. The new Meg Ryan ladies and gentlemen.
