Modern Familyís Sarah Hyland and Teen Wolfís Tyler Posey co-hosted the event, which honored Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) with the Ultimate Choice Award. The ultimate choice of what? Címon Tweens! Clarify!
The Fault In Our Stars will get a Bollywood re-interpretation courtesy of Fox Star Studios, a joint branch between 20th Century Fox and its sister company STAR out of India.
The Fault In Our Stars is sure to be a coming-of-age touchstone for a new generation of moviegoers. And now they will have a pilgrimage point as the recently lost bench from one of the movie's biggest Amsterdam moments has been returned.
We decided that today would be a great day to regroup, reflect and single out the best movies we have seen on screen so far in 2014. The outstanding team of Cinema Blend movie writers have chosen to champion movies both massive and small, passionate and intimate. Even by expanding our list to 10, there are titles we had to leave off of the list.
There are certain movie props that become instantly iconic. For fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and the feature adaptation that followed, the bench that sat near the Leidsdegracht was likely to be a must-visit spot for those who managed to make a trip to Amsterdam.
The Fault in our Stars is a hit. Fans of the book might have predicted that, but less than a month after the feature adaptation of John Green's novel hit theaters, the numbers don't lie.

The Fault In Our Stars hit theaters last night with random evening showings around the country, and this morning, it officially opened everywhere.

I tried to fight it, but in the end, it was just too well done and too touching to robot my way through the entire movie.
Looking to Edge of Tomorrow, Maleficent, and Fault In Our Stars for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of alien invasion adventures, twisted fairy tales, and teen dramas.
In general, I can't say I'd recommend crying in public. But there's something deeply satisfying about sharing a cry with a friend over a movie.
The Summer season is in full effect, and it's showing at the box office with impressive hauls for recently released films like X-Men: Days of Future Past and Maleficent. So what's the buzz this weekend? Fandango's report puts The Fault in Our Stars ahead of Edge of Tomorrow...
Itís a beautiful day in this neighborhood. Which means Mrs. Rotten Week has a laundry list of outdoor jobs needing be done. Theyíll have to wait though. Weíve got a lot of business to take care of with movies coming out this week. Cruise goes Phil Connors and Shailene Woodley gets sick.
