In less than a month, the highly anticipated film adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel “The Fault in Our Stars” will hit theaters, and it’s expected to be a chart-topper.

“The Fault in Our Stars” tells the story of two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and feel an immediate connection. Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters begin their unconventional lives together while trying to keep their diseases at bay.

The film adaptation stars Shailene Woodley (“Divergent,” 2014) and Ansel Egort (“Carrie,” 2013) as the two main characters with a much lesser-known supporting cast.

Woodley had a lot of success recently in her film career with hits like “Divergent,” “The Spectacular Now” and “The Descendants” already under her belt, but if “The Fault in Our Stars” lives up to the hype, it’ll be her biggest hit yet.

Trailers for the film have been released by 20th Century Fox, and fans of the book will be happy to see all their favorite moments from the book included in the film. Judging from the trailer, the movie seems to follow the entire book pretty closely, which will only make “The Fault in Our Stars” more successful.

The film is a must-see for any John Green fan, anyone who has read the book and all types of sob-story lovers. Just make sure to bring a box of Kleenex with you to the theater.
