The teen romance "The Fault in Our Stars," starring Shailene Woodley, took first place at the box office this weekend. The film, based on a very popular novel with the same name, was able to dethrone Angelina Jolie's new film from Disney "Maleficent" and surpass the take from Tom Cruise in "Edge of Tomorrow." "The Fault in Our Stars" earned an impressive $48.2 million, proving that there is room for a summer hit that doesn't feature a super hero nor a raunchy comedy.

Despite very good reviews and a high rating on RottenTomatoes.com, Tom Cruise's new film "Edge of Tomorrow," also starring Emily Blunt, was only able to debut in third place. The film took in a disappointing $29.1 million in Northern America. This science fiction tale by Warner Bros. had an estimated budget of $178 million. Cruise's science fiction flick from last summer "Oblivion" also had small numbers during opening weekend, but was able to gross $286 million worldwide, making the film very profitable. Perhaps overseas ticket sales will boost the film's overall take. But does this spell more trouble for a star that was once considered Hollywood's golden boy?

Disney's "Maleficent" dropped from first to second place, earning an additional $33.5 million. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," starring Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Hugh Jackman, dropped from second to fourth place, earning an additional $14.7 million for Twentieth Century Fox and Seth MacFarlanes's western comedy, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," dropped from third to fifth place, earning an additional $7.2 million.

Making their way into movie theaters next weekend are five films that will endeavor to end "The Fault in Our Stars" reign at first place are: the comedy starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill "22 Jump Street," the animated children's film "How to Train Your Dragon 2," the Aaron Paul thriller "Hellion," the crime drama, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, "The Rover" and the science fiction thriller "The Signal."

Watch for "How to Train Your Dragon 2" to be next week's big winner.
