We already know that The Fault in Our Stars will leave you crying.

But will the movie, based on a beloved best-seller by John Green, leave you standing and cheering by the time the final credits roll?

YES, according to a number of film critics. The Fault in Our Stars reviews are in and they are almost entirely positive.

Watch the most-Liked trailer ever again and then see what these critics have to say...

The honest, human performances from stars Ansel Elgort and especially Shailene Woodley keep it grounded, even when things start to wander or threaten to get too precious. - Tom Long

What leavens the heaviness of the theme is the heroine's wry wit, which Ms. Woodley deploys just as naturally. - Joe Morgenstern

Shailene Woodley's Jennifer Lawrence comments may be getting the most headlines these days, but it's a different kind of drama that could soon make Shailene a box office legend.

Movie ticket sales site Fandango says that Woodley's upcoming film The Fault In Our Stars has posted bigger pre-release sales numbers than any romantic drama in the site's 14-year history.

The highly-anticipated movie has officially beat the 2011 release "The Vow" which went on to gross a whopping $41 million dollars in its opening weekend.

Fault's pre-sale numbers are just about unprecedented for a summer release that's not an action movie or a sequel.

The first trailer for the movie adaptation of the hit young adult novel The Fault In Our Stars has just been released, and with it, our first look at Augustus and Hazel.

The hook that makes this love story a little different?

Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort) meet and fall in love in a child cancer support group, making for a tale that is both devastatingly sad, yet touched with hope.

Watch the trailer below and keep the tissues handy:

At least from this first look at the much-anticipated film, due in theaters June 6, it appears that The Fault In Our Stars will do justice to John Green’s book.

“You trying to keep your distance from me in no way lessens my affection for you,” Augustus, who falls for the shy Hazel right away, says in the trailer.

“Gus, I’m a grenade,” she replies, and she's not talking about the kind that The Situation would flop around naked on top of late night on Jersey Shore.

What she means is that getting involved with her is bound to be explosive. The chemistry may be off the charts, but it's incendiary and combustible.

All of which should make for an unforgettable film for the young adult set. Don't you agree? Have you read the book? Discuss with us in the comments!

It's not often that a movie poster generates controversy, but it's not often that a best-selling novel about cancer-stricken teens get adapted for the big screen either.

A new piece of promotional art for The Fault in Our Stars was unveiled on Buzzfeed yesterday, with many fans doing a double take over the tagline below stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

ONE SICK LOVE STORY, it reads, prompting many to wonder if - based on the aforementioned delicate subject matter - this is some kind of twisted joke.

But John Green, the author of the novel, took to Tumblr and defended the studio's decision.
