While I haven’t had the chance to see it yet, almost everyone I know who caught the teen weepie “The Fault In Our Stars” not only liked the movie, but admitted they reached for their hankies. Even our own Kimber Myers wrote in her review, “it’s an above-average entry into the genre, broadening its appeal beyond just teenagers, fans of the original novel and those who love a good cry.” Next week, you’ll be able to cry longer.
On August 26th, 20th Century Fox is dropping the Shailene Woodley/Ansel Englort flick on Digital HD, with two flavors: the regular theatrical version, and the Extended Edition Sob Until You Barf Edition (okay, some of that description we made up). No word yet on how much longer it runs, or what the new scenes will feature (more Euro vacation maybe? more Willem Dafoe?), or what the running time will will be, but we would recommend you might want to stock up on Kleenex to get you through it.
More details when we get them, but if you prefer your movies on hard disc, “The Fault In Our Stars” arrives on home video, in both versions, on September 16th.
