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.

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.
