This weekend Alex Kurtzman's feature directorial debut "People Like Us" opens in AMC Theatres.

Make sure to purchase your tickets for this refreshing/heartwarming dramedy HERE.

Kurtzman is best known for his work as a writer/producer on science fiction offerings such as the wildly popular theatrical reboot of "Star Trek" and "Transformers." With "People Like Us" he wanted to explore a more intimate family tale, one which is based upon his own experience getting to know a sister he did not grow up with as an adult.

We had the opportunity to sit down with the film's stars Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks and Michelle Pfeiffer to talk about working on this deeply personal and unique film. Take a look at our video interviews as well as the synopsis for the film below.


From DreamWorks Pictures comes "People Like Us," a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine ("Star Trek") as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father's estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father's last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family--and re-examine his own life choices in the process.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
