‘People Like Us’ Featurette Gets Personal

PEOPLE LIKE US
Dreamworks

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are the poster children of the current crop of big studio movies. They wrote ‘Star Trek,’ “Mission: Impossible: III,’ “Cowboys and Aliens’ and are credited on the first two ‘Transformers’ films. These are powerful guys, and with ‘People Like Us‘ they’re finally making their small personal film. Here’s the latest featurette for it.

This film is fascinating because Orci and Kurtzman have a history of writing big dumb action movies. The event films of our time. And so now they’ve made a movie (both wrote on it, Kurtzman directed it) that is nothing like what they’ve done before. Of course having made those movies, they have a spectacular cast that includes Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, Jon Favreau and Michelle Pfieffer. But can they do it?

The featurette is basically interviews intercut with the film’s trailer, but it suggests that this is a very personal movie for Kurtzman as he based it off of some of his life experiences. How deeply he connects to this story of a man (Pine) who finds out that his father had a daughter he never knew about is unknown, but that’s something to talk about on the film’s eventual commentary track and supplements. The film is due out June 29.
