People Like Us Synopsis
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.

People Like Us Is Getting An October Blu-ray Release People Like Us Is Getting An October Blu-ray Release
People Like Us was inspired by true events, and one of the extras, “Number One with a Bullet will let fans learn the facts. Unfortunately, if you nab a DVD copy of this one, you’ll miss out on the true story segment, as well as a few of the other prominent featurettes. You will get a couple of the audio commentaries with the DVD, so if you’re not really a bonus features sort of person, that may be your best bet.

Director Alex Kurtzman Talks About The Deeply Personal People Like Us Director Alex Kurtzman Talks About The Deeply Personal People Like Us
People Like Us was a labor of love for writer/director Alex Kurtzman. In development for eight years, the film is based on his own experience and is a deeply personal story. But for a filmmaker this can be a double-edged sword. The passion drives the project forward, but how do stop yourself from being too stringent and inflexible about the material? For Kurtzman it’s about not being beholden to the words themselves, but instead their spirit.

People Like Us Clip Shows Elizabeth Banks And Chris Pine Having A Family Moment People Like Us Clip Shows Elizabeth Banks And Chris Pine Having A Family Moment
One of the things I've come to learn about science fiction over the years of slowly developing an appreciation for the genre, is that - if done well - science fiction has a way of bringing out the true spirit of humanity. Some of the most emotional stories I've seen and read have fallen under the realm of sci-fi. For example, Alias - a series which veered into sci-fi territory, especially in its later seasons - had a strong family element to its story.
