The first trailer for The Fault in Our Stars, based on author John Green's bestselling novel, debuted on Wednesday, Jan. 29. A small clip was also shown on Today, one day after a snippet premiered online.
Starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, the film tells the story of a teenage cancer patient named Hazel Grace Lancaster who unexpectedly befriends Augustus "Gus" Waters, an ex basketball player and amputee. Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia and Willem Dafoe also star.
The Fault in Our Stars will be released in theaters on Friday, June 6.
For Woodley, landing the role was a dream come true. "I read the script a year ago and basically said that no matter what, I will do anything to be in this movie. Even if I auditioned for Hazel and they'd be like, 'No, you're not her!' I'd just want to be an extra, because I'm so passionate about it," the actress told MTV in July 2013. "So I read the book and I fought really hard for it. And finally when they cast the director [Josh Boone], I auditioned for him. And I guess he liked what I did, because I got it!"
Woodley, 22, and Elgort, 19, also play the Prior siblings in the upcoming movie Divergent.
