So, unless you’ve been in hiding these last 18 hours, you’ve probably seen the trailer for The Fault in Our Stars.┬áConsidering the overwhelming popularity of this book, the trailer has been met with equal enthusiasm. Here it is in case you haven’t seen it:

 

I know everyone is going to vehemently disagree but… I really did not like this trailer and suspect I will dislike the movie as well. I’m sorry, but there is just something so pretentious about it – it makes me want to gag. I love the book – y’all know I love the book – but I really, really found this trailer unpalatable. Augustus is not the charming-but-awkward boy he is in the book, and Hazel seems to do nothing but fawn over him in these two-and-a-half minutes. There was nothing charming, heart-wrenching or even vaguely endearing about either one of them. Which really, really shouldn’t be the case.

Here’s hoping for a complete 180 from the movie.
