Of all the first half releases coming our way this year, there may be none that’s more potentially poised to be right up my alley than The Fault in Our Stars. Directed by Josh Boone (who made the criminally underrated Stuck in Love last year…this is my rave review right here if you’ve never seen it), adapted from the best selling John Green young adult novel by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (who’ve hit two writing home runs with (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now), and starring Shailene Woodley, this could be an awards bait tearjerker in 2014. Costarring Ansel Elgort, Willem Dafoe, Laura Dern, Nat Wolff, and others, the first Trailer has hit and it suggests the heartbreaker that the book has been for so many. Can it avoid being sappy? Well, we won’t find out until June, but you can take a look below for a test run of sorts. Perhaps this can be the one to finally get Woodley recognized by the Academy.
Here’s the Trailer:
