Another Summer film we are looking forward to is People Like Us (formerly Welcome To People), the directorial debut of Star Trek co-writer/producer Alex Kurtzman which also stars Star Trek’s Chris Pine. The film was written and produced by Kurtzman and his Trek writing partner Roberto Orci. The first trailer has just been released, check it out below.

The family drama People Like Us is a departure for Orci and Kurtzman, best known for big budget genre films. Here is a synopsis:
The story of a struggling man (Chris Pine) who, after flying home to L.A. for the funeral of his estranged record-producer father, discovers that the will stipulates that he must deliver $150,000 in cash to a 30-year-old alcoholic sister (Elizibeth Banks) he never knew existed, and her troubled 12-year-old son.
People Like Us arrives in theater on June 29, 2012 (ironically the original release date for the Star Trek sequel).
