Why not watch this week's number one box office flick? "The Fault in Our Stars" has won over North American audiences, pulling in $48.2 million in weekend ticket sales. Falling in love is the risk for these teens who met in a cancer support group. Based on the best-selling novel by John Green, the film weaves humor and a heart-wrenching storyline. It tells a tale of courage in the face of misfortune. "Maleficent" starring Angelina Jolie sits at number two this week. It boldly reimagines the tale of Sleeping Beauty.
