Watch: 'SNL' Gives 'The Fault in Our Stars' a Timely, Infectious Sequel
"Sometimes the most contagious disease is love." Following last week's trailer for all the wackiness that Marvel has in store for audiences, "Saturday Night Live" has taken aim at sequelizing this past summer's tear-jerking sequel The Fault in Our Stars. Taking a cue from the headline-making arrival of ebola in the United States, the sequel shows that romance has a little more trouble this time overcoming another incurable disease. Sarah Silverman (who hosted last weekend's episode) is adorable in the Shailene Woodley role, and this is just a fun, timely parody. It might get less funny if we all get ebola though. Watch!
Here's the fake trailer for The Fault in Our Stars 2: The Ebola in Our Everything (via NBC):
The Fault in Our Stars is directed by Josh Boone (Stuck in Love) and written by (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, based on John Green's 2012 novel of the same name. Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel (Shailene Woodley) has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. The film is available on Blu-Ray and DVD right now.
