by at .  Updated at . Comments

The first weekend movie preview for June features the return of Tom Cruise in top form (Edge of Tomorrow) and Shailene Woodley bringing to the big screen a beloved romance book that will leave you in tears in the best of ways (The Fault in Our Stars). 

Let's break it down...

Edge of Tomorrow: Cruise is back as the action hero we first discovered him being in Top Gun. The futuristic thriller is one part alien invasion movie, one part inspired by Groundhog Day and all brilliant.

Emily Blunt is his co-star and matches him note-for-note as a heroic soldier who holds the key to him breaking the cycle of dying and then repeating the same day of battle over and over and over. For more on this fantastic film, check out our Edge of Tomorrow review.

The Fault in Our Stars: Woodley and Ansel Elgort star in the romance movie that has captivated millions on the pages of the blockbuster novel. Woodley and Elgort meet in a terminal cancer support group and immediately sparks fly. The two fall in love, despite knowing that each will die sooner rather than later.

Despite its potentially grim premise, this film is utterly uplifting, inspiring and will certainly bring you to tears more than once. Our The Fault in Our Stars review reports that fans of the book should be delighted with the big screen version.
