The romantic-comedy, based on the novel of the same name by John Green, surged straight to the top by earning an impressive $48.2 million domestically.

Woodley takes on the challenge role that doesn't require her to play the typical, clean-cut female lead Hollywood usually offers. The 22 year-old actress portrays a cancer stricken teenager who falls in love with Augustus Waters, after meeting at a support group.

It seems that love was in the air this weekend as Tom Cruise's new sci-fi epic 'Edge of Tomorrow,' starring Emily Blunt, could only debut at No.3 by garnering nearly $20 million less than 'Fault In Our Stars' with $29. 1 million.

More surprisingly, this is one of the 51 year-olds highest-rated flick's in recent years, as it depicts an alien race attacking Earth with an unrelenting assault. After dying early on, Cruise's character finds himself in a time loop is forced to live out the same combat over and over again.
