Is anyone else as excited as we are for the release of “The Fault in Our Stars” this weekend? Well, according to Fandango—everyone is.  The Wrap reports that “The Fault in Our Stars” has taken the record for the biggest pre-selling love story in Fandango’s history.

In case you’ve been living under a rock with no access to YouTube, TV or the movies, John Green’s wildly popular book takes the big screen tomorrow with Shailene Woodley playing the main character, Hazel Grace, and Ansel Egort playing Augustus Waters. For anyone not aware of the story, here’s a quick rundown: these two young lovebirds have both been afflicted with different forms of childhood cancer, and they meet in a support group. The plot is developed through hauntingly beautiful lines from Green that truly make this a love story to remember.

This is one movie you won’t want to miss this summer if you want to stay up-to-date in water cooler chatter. With this being her second huge movie of 2014 (and we’re not even halfway through!) “The Fault in Our Stars” is sure to cement Shailene Woodley’s A-list status for good.

We’ll give you advance warning—definitely bring the tissues for this one. Book fans: after you see the movie—let us know which you prefer, the book version or movie version!
