'The Fault in Our Stars' Conquers All (Specifically: Tom Cruise) At The Box Office Published: June 7, 2014

What does it take to defeat Tom Cruise? Ask author John Green, because the big-screen adaptation of his wildly popular “The Fault in Our Stars” soared past the A-lister’s “Edge of Tomorrow” for a huge opening, and is on track to woo the weekend crowd for a win at the box office, MTV reports.

No fault in this performance: the YA drama defied expectations with a $23.5-$25+ million opening, on track for what could be an incredible $53+ million grossing weekend. Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie bewitched the competition with her ability to own the box office two weekends in a row — “Maleficent” conjured second place, which leaves Tom’s “Edge of Tomorrow” on Cruise control for a third place opener – the film debuted at $10.4 million, with a projected $28-$30 million weekend.
