First Look at ‘The Fault in Our Stars’


What: “The Fault in Our Stars”

Cast: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell and Willem Dafoe

Writers: Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber

Director: Josh Boone

The story: Two teenagers (Woodley, Elgort) fall in love at a cancer support group in this adaptation of John Green’s novel.

The buzz: This is some crazy smart counter-programming in a summer full of action movies. The novel’s devoted fan base turned the first scenes from the movie into the most-liked trailer in YouTube history. That passion means there’s a real chance it could win the face-off with Tom Cruise’s “Edge of Tomorrow.”
