FOX 2000’s ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ is on track to becoming one of this year’s most profitable movies.
Domestically, ‘The Fault in Our Stars‘ has just made $100 million. According to Deadline, the movie recently premiered in Brazil and despite the World Cup being in full swing, ‘The Fault in Our Stars‘ is one of the most popular movies in the country. In 11 days the movie made more more money in Brazil than Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.
This will definitely set the careers fro the two young actors. Currently, Ansel Elgort will star in a movie about the famous Texas-born pianist who become extremely popular during the Cold War between U.S. and Russia. This is also great news for Lionsgate who has Shailene Woodley currently filming the Divergent sequel Insurgent.
The movie was successful since The Fault in our Stars was a best-selling novel and had a large social media following.
Not only did Green have a best-seller, but he had own following from his YouTube channel, the Vlogbrothers, which he has been doing with his brother, Hank, for the past seven years. It has over 2.1M subscribers…as social media engagement for Fault was tracking off the charts. So from that, Green already had millions of followers on social media.
This may mark the start of more cancer related TV series, and movies. Fox has new TV series, The Red Band Society, centers around daily lives of a group of teenagers living in a hospital who become unlikely friends. The depth of the unexpected friendships allows them to survive the challenges of growing up under such intense circumstances. With the recent success of ‘The Fault in Our Stars‘ expect for this show to have a large social media and TV following.
