We have a couple of new posters to share this afternoon. First up is the debut poster for director Josh Boone’s adaptation of the emotional John Green novel The Fault in Our Stars. The film stars Shailene Woodley as Hazel, a young cancer patient who strikes up a relationship with another cancer-stricken teen named Gus, played by Ansel Elgort (Carrie). The poster does a nice job of conveying the tone of the story, complete with the tagline “One Sick Love Story”. As a big fan of the book, that tagline seems kind of perfect. The film also stars Nat Wolff, Willem Dafoe, Laura Dern, and Mike Birbiglia and opens on June 6, 2014.
Additionally, Fox Searchlight has released a fantastic character poster for Wes Anderson’s upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel. The one-sheet teases the period film’s swell ensemble cast in true Wes Anderson fashion, and it precedes a character trailer that will be released tomorrow. The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Saoirse Ronan, and Bill Murray and opens March 7, 2014.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Fault in Our Stars:
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them – and us – on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Grand Budapest Hotel:
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
