Movie Exclusive – Four New Stills for “The Fault in Our Stars” Movie Released

Hypable and Page to Premiere recently shared four new stills from The Fault in Our Stars movie adaptation! These images give us a closer look at the swing set scene and the dinner scene in Amsterdam.

The Fault in Our Stars - #31

For those unfamiliar with the story, Hazel, her mom, and Augustus end up going on a short trip to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s favorite author, Peter Van Houten. The trip ends up being quite disappointing because Van Houten is not very welcoming during their visit.

One still seems to be showing Hazel asking her mom for advice as she is getting ready for dinner out with Augustus. This is the only still that reveals a moment not shown in the trailer. The three other stills are simply giving us a closer glimpse at moments already revealed in the recent trailer.

Movie Exclusive – First Official Full Length Trailer for “The Fault in Our Stars”

After weeks of rumors circulating and an unfortunate premature “leak,” the official trailer for The Fault in Our Stars movie is here! Of course, this trailer gives audiences an in depth look at some early footage from the film and sets up the story quite well.

The Fault in Our Stars - trailer still #1

We get our first look at some of the major scenes between Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort). In addition, we get a glimpse at some scenes with Hazel and her parents (Laura Dern and Sam Trammell). Something that is also very sweet about the trailer is our first look at the friendship between Augustus and Isaac (Nat Wolff).

Although we do see scenes from the Amsterdam portion of the story, we do not get to see Willem Dafoe as Hazel’s favorite author, Peter Van Houten. However, this trailer is more focused on setting up the love story between Hazel and Augustus anyway. Watch the fantastic first trailer below:

The Fault in Our Stars was directed by Josh Boone and the cast also includes Lotte Verbeek, Mike Birbiglia, Emily Peachey, Milica Govich, and David Whalen.

What did you think of this new trailer? Does this make you more excited for the movie? What do you think of the cast now that you have seen them in character? Check back in for more The Fault in Our Stars exclusives as we get closer to the release date!

First Official Trailer for “The Fault in Our Stars” Movie to be Released Tomorrow

There have been rumors circulating around the release date of The Fault in Our Stars trailer for weeks. However, these rumors can finally be put to rest as it was officially announced that it will be released tomorrow morning! At first it was believed that it was going to be released on Valentine’s Day, which was partially true because that is when it is going to start playing in movie theaters. [*UPDATE* The trailer actually starting playing theaters on February 7, 2014.]

TRAILER

Unfortunately, somebody who had been trusted with a copy of the trailer leaked it online over the weekend, but it was swiftly taken down due to obvious copyright issues. I believe that the premature “leak” of the trailer pushed Fox to decide to release it earlier.

In a recent Vlogbrothers video, author John Green answered some fan questions about the film and shared a special teaser:

What do you think of this exciting news? What do you think of the teaser John shared? Are you looking forward to the official release of The Fault in Our Stars movie? Who is your favorite character in the story? Stay tuned for the trailer!
