Box office report: 'The Fault in Our Stars' takes the top spot with $48.2 million; 'Edge of Tomorrow' settles for third

Cue the faux-surprise. Female-targeted films A Fault in Our Stars and Maleficent wiped the floor with the competition, forcing Tom Cruise’s more teenage boy-friendly Edge of Tomorrow into a third-spot opening. Women made up a staggering 82 percent of the opening-weekend audience for the adaptation of John Green’s YA novel about teenage cancer patients—comparatively, Twilights initial audience was only 75 percent female. The film made $48.2 million, vaulting it alongside Love Story in the firmament of emotionally and financially resonant weepies. That’s less than the $56 million Divergent made its first three days out, but that other Shailene Woodley-starring YA adaptation cost a whole lot more.

Of course, Fault’s success will probably level out in the coming weeks once the film’s steadfast fanbase decides that their eighth bawl-filled screening is enough. (It was a 52 percent drop from Friday to Saturday alone.) But even considering just this weekend, the adaptation is an unqualified success for Fox and stands as more not-quite-shocking evidence that when you target movies at a demographic that’s typically underserved—particularly in the summer months—you can reap pretty big dividends. Especially when that demographic represents half of the world’s population. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Fault in Our Stars' prompts flow of tears and cash

The teenaged protagonists of The Fault in Our Stars may be star-crossed, but their box-office performance is anything but. Millions of moviegoers whipped out their wallets and hankies, in that order, to catch Fox’s tear-jerking adaptation of John Green’s popular YA novel about a pair of amorous adolescents (Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort) battling cancer. The film added to its phenomenal $8.2 million Thursday-night take to bring its total to $26.1 million on Friday. That’s more than two-and-a-half times what Tom Cruise’s sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow managed.

It’s also more than Woodley’s other YA vehicle, Divergent, made on its first day of release. Green’s fanbase is an especially dedicated one, so it’s to be expected that the film’s success would be front-loaded; but with a projected opening weekend take of somewhere around $60 million, it’s still beyond impressive.

'The Fault in Our Stars': Are those tears of joy, critics?

fault-in-our-stars-07.jpg

Perhaps the people who run studios thought Divergent was the big YA novel to launch Shailene Woodley into the stratosphere, but her performance in the cancer weepie The Fault in Our Stars might be the role that makes her a giant star.

Based on John Green’s 2012 best-seller, director Josh Boone’s movie tells the story of a cynical 16-year-old cancer patient (Woodley), saddled with an oxygen tank and breathing tube, and the more-dynamic, free-spirited remission patient (Ansel Elgort) who falls in love with her. “A generation of teens like [Woodley's character] have been weaned on YA novels, leading to more discerning palates,” EW’s Chris Nashawaty writes in his review. “They can sniff out condescension from a thousand yards. That’s why they’re lucky to have an actress as effortlessly charismatic and natural as 22-year-old Woodley (The Descendants) as their stand-in.”

If you’ve read the book, you know the ending, and if you loved the book, you’re already whimpering. (Beware, fragile souls, the trailer awaits below.) If you’re perhaps older or didn’t read the book, think Love Story and everything that entails — spoilers, schmoilers. As the characters themselves learn, it’s not the ending that counts.

Sam Trammell talks 'The Fault in Our Stars,' the danger of mountain lions on the 'True Blood' set

The month of June should treat Sam Trammell well: The actor is in a little movie now in theaters — he plays Hazel’s father in The Fault in Our Stars — and will be back on our TVs come June 22, when the seventh and final season of HBO’s True Blood premieres.

He stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM Channel 105) to chat about both. In the first clip below, he talks about playing a parent for the first time on-screen and the first movie that made him weep. In the second, he confirms we’re in for a darker, scarier season of True Blood; that he’s still naked a lot; and that night shoots require a bit of bravery. READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: The teens take on Tom Cruise

This weekend, a powerful genre battles a powerful movie star as the YA sensation The Fault in Our Stars opens against Tom Cruise’s sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow. But who will prevail — especially when Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent is still lurking in the background?

Here’s how things might play out. READ FULL STORY

Shailene Woodley explains herself after 'feminism' kerfuffle -- listen here!

Shailene Woodley, star of the The Fault in Our Stars (opening this weekend), recently dropped by Entertainment Weekly Radio’s Women on Pop to talk about the highly anticipated adaptation of the John Green best-seller. EW’s Melissa Maerz and Sara Vilkomerson also asked Woodley if she wanted to further explain some of her recent quotes — including the now infamous interview with Time magazine, in which she was asked whether she considers herself a feminist and she said no. Woodley was happy to oblige, and to clarify what she meant: “For me the big thing in life is about sisterhood,” she says. “Bringing sisters together and supporting one another…What I found so funny and so sad about that article is that I talked about that the entire time. Nothing is going to change in this world until women start loving other women. I’m so lucky. I have the best sisters in my life. The best.”

Woodley went on to say that she thinks the article (and surrounding hoopla) was counterintuitive to what she was saying. “It pitted women against me,” she says. “The thing I was trying to say we need to eliminate — without the word ‘feminist,’ without any word attached to it — we need to begin to evolve the way we look at sisterhood. It’s the exact opposite of what [the article] ended up doing.”

Take a listen below to hear Woodley’s thoughts! READ FULL STORY
