Young women turned out in droves this weekend to see teen romance The Fault in our Stars, which easily took the top spot with $48 million. Meanwhile, Edge of Tomorrow was unable to convert strong reviews in to a successful debut.The Fault in our Stars opened noticeably higher than past romantic hits The Vow ($41.2 million) and Dear John ($30.5 million). Despite doing more business on Friday, though, Fault wound up lower than star Shailene Woodley's Divergent ($54 million) for the full weekend.With over 10 million copies in print, John Green's The Fault in our Stars is one of the most popular books in recent memory. Fans of the book were enamored with the movie's trailer, which appeared to accurately portray the story of two cancer-stricken teens falling in love. From there, distributor 20th Century Fox mobilized those fans with a targeted marketing strategy that focused heavily on social media outreach. »
