Did you hear that? That was the screams of a million teenage girls as the first trailer for The Fault in Our Stars made its debut. Adapted from John Green’s best-selling novel, TFIOS takes audiences on a walk to remember as two star-crossed lovers battle the effects of cancer together. Watch the first full-length trailer after the break.
Now I have never read the book, but I am told, and have read on Tumblr, that The Fault in Our Stars will make The Notebook look like a puddle compared to the ocean of tears it will bring about. I’m not sure about that, but with any romantic drama based on a sever illness, there always comes death. I have not yet let spoilers of the real life events the book has been based on blip onto my radar, but I am confident that the writing team – Scott Neaustadter and Michael H. Weber – behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now will hit this one out of the ball park as well.
It’s hard to look at this movie in a post-A Walk to Remember world, but this is based off true events and people and has a better lead actress. Shailene Woodley has nailed everything she touches. Mostly unknown, Ansel Elgor, on the other hand, looks like he can hold his own against the young, Golden Globe nominated star. Ansel and Shailene also star in Divergent together as brother and sister, which is due out this spring.

Here’s the plot synopsis for The Fault in Our Stars, courtesy of Apple Trailers:
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them—and us—on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
For non fans, does this movie feel like a departure from A Walk to Remember? For fans, does TFIOS look like it will live up to the story from the pages you’ve clung on to?
The Fault in Our Stars lands in theaters this summer on June 6.
