ERMAGAD! The trailer for The Fault in our Stars, after being leaked earlier this week, is finally here in all its HD glory, though still a little earlier than previously anticipated. Watch it below and keep a tissue box handy. Also, spoilers ahead [seriously, read the book].

After a long wait, as the fans grew increasingly impatient and John Green became quite vocal about his situation …

So many of these scenes are just like what we imagined. The best part is that we can really recognise these scenes from the book and as book fans, what more do we want? John Green’s book was full of awesome quotes and the trailer was no different.

Hazel [after bumping into Augustus]: “Sorry.”
Augustus/Gus [cheekily smiling]: “My bad.”
Hazel: [smiles like a fangirl].

Gus: “What’s your name?”
Hazel: “Hazel.”
Gus: “What’s your full name?”
Hazel: “Hazel Grace Lancaster. Why are you staring at me?”
Gus: “Cos you’re beautiful.”
Hazel: [blushes like a fangirl].

Okay?

okay 2

Okay.

NO I AM NOT OKAY!

Here is the song used in the trailer, OneRepublic’s “What You Wanted”. Listen to it while I gather my thoughts and feels.

We love the look of the film and especially LOVE that they’ve kept so many lines from the book. Shailene Woodley nails Hazel’s inner turmoil and attitude but the only thing I’m still wondering about her performance is if she made Hazel into an extrovert. At least in my head, Hazel was an introvert and a little shy and introverts don’t sit like this –

Ansel Elgort certainly captures the charm and cuteness that is Augustus Waters and does pull off the teenage look in most scenes. But in some scenes, the two leads do look a little older than your average teenagers. Don’t mind me, guys … I’m pretty sure I will love the film and their performances. However, someone who has stolen the show is Nat Wolf as Isaac especially in the egg throwing scene. Laura Dern and Sam Trammell as Hazel’s parents, play the part of her heartbroken parents well. Notably missing in the trailer are references to Peter van Houten (played by William Dafoe) and Gus’ cigarette metaphor, which we are dying to see. All in all, I’d be lying if I said that the trailer didn’t tug at my heart strings and water my nose. I’d be lying a lot! The film releases on June 6, 2014 and as a parting gift, we’ll give you one for the road –

Gus: “It’s a good life, Hazel Grace.”

Did you cry? Be honest.

The blurb on the cover of the young adult book describes the story as

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a patient named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

The film stars Shailene Woodley as Hazel Lancaster, Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters, Nat Wolff as Isaac with Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) and Sam Tramell (True Blood‘s Sam Merlott) taking on the role of Hazel’s parents.

Josh Boone is directing the film, which will be shooting in Pittsburgh as well as in Amsterdam.
