Want to See 'The Fault in our Stars' Before Everyone Else? Here's How
June 6 is only two weeks away, but for those of us who've been waiting over a year for The Fault in Our Stars to finally hit theaters, it feels like an eternity. Although no amount of book re-reading, trailer watching, or clip dissecting can make that day come faster, despite our best attempts, 20th Century Fox has come up with a way to speed up the process: The Night Before Our Stars, a cross-country event in which TFIOS fans can see the movie and watch a Q&A with the cast, held on June 5, the eve of the movie's release.
According to the film's website, The Night Before Our Stars is an "unprecedented event" where attendees in both the United States and Canada can see the the movie before its premiere and be included in "the largest ever live simulcast experience." Through a live-stream, fans will watch stars Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, and Nat Wolff, along with John Green and director Josh Boone, give a post-screening Q&A, regardless of where in the country they're located. There will also be performances by Nat Wolff's band, Nat and Alex, as well as Birdy, a singer who's featured on the film's soundtrack. In addition, attendees will receive a commemorative charm bracelet, an exclusive TFIOS poster, and what's described as a "very special surprise" in the works.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Nope. The Night Before Our Stars is totally real, and will take place at 8:30 pm EST on June 5. The $25 tickets are currently available on participating theater chains' websites, as well as on outlets such as Fandango. If you're interested in attending, though, you better hurry; one can't imagine that with a fanbase like TFIOS's, any related event, let alone one as great as this one, won't sell out before long.
So, TFIOS fans, The Night Before Our Stars is your chance to "feel it first," as Fox states on the film's website. Sure, it's a bit much to pay $25 to see a movie early that'll be released to the public twelve hours later, but when you add in the live-stream, the goodies, and the experience of collectively bonding with thousands of other fans across the country, it's well worth the extra money. Plus, this way, even more people will get to see you sob like a baby when you watch the movie! What more could a real TFIOS fan want?
