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!
