Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort respond to the controversial tagline featured in the first The Fault in Our Stars film poster which was released this past Wednesday.
The controversial tagline sparked a huge debate within the Fault in Our Stars fandom! Many feel that the tagline: “One sick love story” is distasteful and does not capture the true emotion of the film.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Woodley said about The Fault in Our Stars’ “one sick love story” tagline, “I had a really strong response to it. It’s definitely — it’s not a tagline that I probably would have chosen by any means,” she said.
Woodley admits that all readers would never come to an agreement on one tagline that could appeal to a wide audience. “I think that there’s so many people who are so passionate about this book that there’s nothing that will ever satisfy everyone. So I think it was just up to the discretion of the marketing mavens,” she says. “For me, it was — yeah, not something I would have chosen. But it seems like half the people love it and half the people don’t like it.”
Ansel Elgort also tweeted out about the controversy:
Following the release of the TFIOS poster, a few days ago, many fans have commented and voiced their opinions on the controversial tagline used on the poster: “ONE SICK LOVE STORY”. To put the fans at ease author John Green has released a statement via Tumblr:
“I like the tag line,” Green wrote after saying it’s not his decision and isn’t his movie. “I found it dark and angry in the same way that Hazel is (at least at times) dark and angry in her humor. I mostly wanted something that said, ‘This is hopefully not going to be a gauzy, sentimental love story that romanticizes illness and further spreads the lie that the only reason sick people exist is so that healthy people can learn lessons.’ But that’s not a very good tag line. I like the tag line because it says, literally, the sick can also have love stories. Love and joy and romance are not just things reserved for the well.”
Finally a poster has been released for The Fault in Our Stars, which is set to release in June 2014! The poster shows Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) laying in the grass smiling at each other! This is truly a magical moment for us all! I wonder what other TFIOS goodies are to come 😀
It has been a while since we have heard any TFIOS news. The film has finished shooting and is now in post production! We at TFIOS Support Group can not wait to see one of our favorite novels come to life! There are still many people out there who have not read the book! So we encourage you to tell you friends about it! Bring a smile to Ansel Elgort’s face 😛
Always puts a big smile on my face when I see people reading #tfios on the subway 🙂
John Green recently sat down with Hypable to discuss the upcoming film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars! Read more below:
A key part of a book to film adaptation is just how loyal the script is to the source material.
For The Fault in Our Stars, it’s nearly identical.
In a new interview with The Pittsburgh Gazette, The Fault in Our Stars author John Green says that “almost every line of dialogue in the movie is from the book.”
He added, “It’s very, very faithful.”
Though it’s a loyal adaptation, that doesn’t mean we have Green to thank. The writer says that he stays out of the way during filming and didn’t have a part in writing the script. “Usually book writers are on the set for one or two days. I’m lucky to have a really great relationship with Josh [Boone] the director, and he’s the kind of relaxed, laid-back, confident guy who doesn’t need to worry about that stuff,” he said. “I don’t want it to be my movie. I don’t know how to direct a movie.”
Green also spoke about why fans feel it necessary to see a book brought to the big screen. “When people really love a book, what they want to see is the book come to life. They want to see the book visually, and I’m sympathetic to that desire. I felt that desire about books that I loved, I felt that about ‘Harry Potter,’ I felt that about ‘Revolutionary Road,’ I felt that about a huge variety of books.”
“But, you know, my hope is that it can be a good movie, not that it can be a good visualization of a book.”
The Fault in Our Stars is currently filming in Pittsburgh, and this past Monday Hypable got to visit the set to speak with the stars and watch them shoot. We will have a detailed report up closer to the film’s release.
