We’ve been provided with eight clips from director Alex Kurtzman’s (co-writer of Star Trek and Cowboys & Aliens) character drama People Like Us to share. The film stars Chris Pine as a debt-ridden salesman who must split a sizeable inheritance with a sister (Elizabeth Banks) he didn’t know about; as he struggles with the decision of whether to share the money or not, he forges a relationship with his unsuspecting sister and her young son. In a change of pace from their usual blockbuster/action fare, Kurtzman co-wrote the script with frequent collaborator Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert.
Hit the jump to watch the clips. The film also stars Olivia Wilde, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mark Duplass and Jon Favreau. People Like Us opens on June 29th.
Here’s the synopsis for People Like Us:
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.
