Those who want to see The Fault in our Stars a day early may want to check out "The Night Before Our Stars," an advance screening and Q&A event scheduled the day before the film's official release. In addition to attending the live simulcast, and getting to see the movie a day ahead of everyone else, ticket holders will also receive a commemorative charm bracelet and an exclusive poster for the film. Check out the spot Fox recently posted online to promote "The Night Before Our Stars," which is set to take place June 5.
The new spot features Charli XCX's "Boom Clap" off The Fault in our Stars soundtrack, and promotes "The Night Before Our Stars." As early screenings are becoming pretty common for movie releases, the real perk to this event seems to be the simulcast, which will include appearances by stars Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff, along with Fault in our Stars author John Green, the film's director Joshua Boone and producer Wyck Godfrey. In addition to a Q&A, the event will also include "intimate, live musical performances by Birdy and Nat Wolff."
"The Night Before Our Stars" is scheduled to take place June 5 at 8:30 p.m EST (7:30 p.m. CST, 6:30 p.m. Mountain, 5:30 p.m. PST).
Tickets are available throughThe Fault in our Stars website:
Tickets cost $25 a piece.
The price may seem kind of high for a movie ticket, but it's worth considering for fans of the book, particularly those who want to experience the movie for the first time surrounded by people who are likely just as excited to be there as they are. It's probably safe to assume that most of the people who attend "The Night Before Our Stars" are book fans. So, even if the Q&A and musical performances are happening on screen, the in-theater energy should be brimming with anticipation and enthusiasm for the movie. There's definitely something to be said about enjoying something in the company of other fans. That's just something to consider if you're trying to weigh the pros and cons to spending more than twice the cost of a regular movie ticket to see the The Fault in our Stars a day ahead of schedule. You'll also get the poster and charm bracelet.
Based on John Green's novel, The Fault in our Stars stars Shailene Woodley as Hazel, a girl fighting terminal cancer, who meets Gus (Ansel Elgort) at a support group for kids with cancer. The two spark an instant connection and eventual romance as they get to know one another. Everything we've seen from the film suggests Woodley and Elgort are capturing that spark between Hazel and Gus nicely, but we'll know for sure on June 6 when the film hits theaters, or June 5, for those who are planning on seeing the film during "The Night Before Our Stars."
