The Fault In Our Stars was part of the 20th Century Fox panel at CinemaCon 2014 held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Shailene Woodley attended the panel and walked the red carpet. She talked to press about TFIOS. Shailene will also receive "CinemaCon Female Star of Tomorrow Award" for proving she is a rising star to watch in Hollywood.

During the panel, Fox presented an extended TFIOS trailer. Many of the film journalists who attended the event liked what they saw:

Shailene also talked to the audience about TFIOS
The Wrap wrote a recap of TFIOS presentation:
“It's an amazingly powerful story,” Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos told exhibitors, noting the film signals “our business isn't only about franchises and visual effects extravaganzas.”

The Hollywood Reporter wrote:
Shailene Woodley, star of Divergent and the upcoming The Fault in Our Stars, was next to take the stage.
"It was truly, authentically, genuinely one of the biggest honors of my life to be a part of this project," said Woodley of Fault in Our Stars. "I literally told Fox that I would be a PA or a caterer if I wasn't right for the role of Hazel Grace."

The showmanship continued as Gianopulos ran through the coming films with help from Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann, both from “The Other Woman,” along with Shailene Woodley, star of the already buzz-building “The Fault in Our Stars.”
Woodley says the film, based on a book of the same name by John Green, was so important to her that she volunteered to be a production assistant or caterer, just to help it get made.
“It rewrote the way I look at every breath” she told the audience.
