Adventures of a Teenage Dragonslay­er: Actor- turned- director Andrew Lauer reunited with his former castmates from the 1995-99 sitcom Caroline in the City, Lea Thompson, Eric Lutes and Amy Pietz, for this liveaction fantasy about a meek 12-year- old high school nerd (Hunter Allan) whose life is transforme­d when he is recruited by a troll to help defeat a dangerous dragon.

Hairspray: It started as a John Waters-directed movie, then transition­ed into a hit stage musical — and it comes full circle in its more tuneful film incarnatio­n.
