New ‘Fault In Our Stars’ Trailer: Prepare To Cry


I cry at the movies more often than I should probably admit, but when a good story grabs you it can be hard to resist shedding a few salty tears when the hero/heroine finally reaches their destiny, finds their love, or otherwise reaches the end of their journey. It happens so often, in fact, that I like to think I have the power to recognize when I am going to need to remember to stash a few tissues in my jacket pocket. With that in mind, let me say this: The Fault In Our Stars will shatter your heart. You’ve been warned.

Based on the bestselling young adult novel your weird friend who still obsesses over books was talking about that one time at a party a couple months back, The Fault In Our Stars follows Hazel and Gus, two extraordinary teenagers who share sharp wit, a deep-seeded hatred for the conventional, and a love for one another that knows no bounds. That part is perhaps most important of all, as Hazel And Gus’ affection for one another is put to the test over the course of the story. I don’t want to give away everything you will learn in the trailer before the visuals have a chance to manipulate your emotions, so let’s jump right to the clip and then I’ll ramble some more:

Okay, MAYBE I teared up a little bit during this clip, but can you blame me? Shailene Woodley has built an onscreen brand that commands attention, and here she is finally put in a position to show the true range of her dramatic talent. She laughs, cries, and who knows? Maybe even dies. If you know, DON’T SPOIL IT. Some of us want to breakdown in public places when this film opens next month.

There are a lot of films competing for attention this summer, but The Fault In Our Stars offers an original and simple tale of young love that stands out against the gobs of CGI littered throughout most tentpole efforts. Take a chance on teen romance and dive in.
