Hairspray, New Line Cinema's film version of the Broadway smash, premiered in the L.A. on July 10th, and dozens of stars strolled down the red carpet to catch the eagerly anticipated movie musical! Hairspray opens nationwide in U.S. theaters on July 20th.

Directed by Adam Shankman, the film stars newcomer Nikki Blonsky as heroine Tracy Turnblad, who helps to integrate a Baltimore dance show and wins the heart of Link Larkin in the process. Hairspray's star-studded cast also features John Travolta as Edna Turnblad, Allison Janney as Prudy Pingleton, Christopher Walken as Wilbur Turnblad, Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle, Michelle Pfeiffer as Velma Von Tussle, Brittany Snow as Amber Von Tussle, Zac Efron as Link Larkin, Elijah Kelley as Seaweed, and James Marsden as Corny Collins.

Hairspray is produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who previously broughtChicago to the big screen as an Oscar-winning movie musical.  The film features a screenplay by Leslie Dixon, who adapted it from Thomas Meehan and Mark O'Donnell's original book, as well as a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who contributed new songs to their existing Tony Award-winning score.
