I’m sure many fans of John Green’s book feel this way, but the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars is something I’m both very excited and nervous about. The book is so wonderful, so heartwrenching, so moving, it’s worrisome to think that the film could fall short in conveying and extracting those emotions, as book-to-movie adaptations often do. But by the looks of this clip, which debuted during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, I don’t have much to worry about. I enjoy Shailene Woodley as an actress and look forward to seeing how she takes on the role of cancer-stricken Hazel Grace, but it’s Ansel Elgort who completely steals this scene as the enigmatic Augustus. Elgort completely nails Gus’s amused, flirtatious, confident, philosophical vibe, and in just a quick 60 seconds, we see exactly why Hazel — and the book’s readers — can’t turn away. June 6 can’t get here soon enough.
Buzzfeed got ahold of the beautiful movie poster for the upcoming film adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars, and if you’ve read the book, it’s basically impossible to look at it for more than two seconds without sobbing uncontrollably (in a good way, kind of). Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are beyond perfect as Hazel and Gus. Seriously, this is exactly how I imagined these characters. See the image in all its uncropped glory and join the worldwide crying party after the jump! Keep reading »
That giant squeal you heard on Friday afternoon was the Internet learning that the movie version of “The Fault In Our Stars” had cast its Gus: 19-year-old Ansel Elgort. The Fault In Our Stars, for those of you not in-the-know, is an amazing YA novel by John Green about Hazel and Gus, two kids who fall in love in a support group for teens with cancer. It’s a five-hankie sobfest and a really good book. Shailene Woodley has already been cast as Hazel, a move we wholeheartedly approve.
