The Fault in Our Stars Crosses $100 Million Mark: Most Profitable Film of 2014?

by at . Comments

The Fault in Our Stars has just crossed the coveted $100 million mark domestically and it has us thinking: This might just be one of the most profitable films of the year. Upon closer inspection, why yes, yes it is!

The Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort romance cost a mere $12 million to make and its opening north of the $45 million mark caught many by surprise. But, if you look at the marketing, right from that first The Fault in Our Stars trailer, it was spot on.

And keep in mind, young adult audiences do not always turn out for movies based on beloved books, but this John Green penned book was different. It had heart and was devoid of any kind of supernatural element.

It was about two people falling in love in the most difficult of circumstances and audiences, whether on page or on screen, pulled for them.

Now, The Fault in Our Stars is not done. So far internationally, the film has made almost $65 million. That’s $165 million globally! That’s a whole lot of money for a film that only cost $12 million to make.

We knew from early pre-sales when it seemed like The Fault in Our Stars was breaking records that it would do well. But, this is an entirely different animal altogether.

Well done, indeed.
