This past June, The Fault in Our Stars brought John Green’s tale of the little infinities shared by cancer-stricken teens Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) to the big screen. Along the way, the film became one of the popcorn season’s biggest movies for non-superhero or Channing Tatum devotees.
As of Aug. 26, superfans can weep to their heart’s content in the privacy of their own homes with the release of the film’s Digital HD edition (followed by a Blu-ray/DVD release on Sept. 16). Talking with EW, Elgort predicts the extended cut of the film will be catnip for Green’s army of followers. “We did a lot of scenes that didn’t make it in the [theatrical] release, some scenes that are really beautiful,” he says. “I bet now I’ll be seeing screenshots from [the deleted] scenes all over Instagram.”
Elgort recalls that director Josh Boone was particularly happy to add back in a tender moment when Hazel reads William Carlos Williams’ “The Red Wheelbarrow” to Gus as an ambulance takes him to the hospital.
Below, you’ll find another never-before-seen moment between the young loves that takes place after Gus’s sudden trip to the emergency room.
