A few days ago, Karl Urban told the internet that the first footage from the upcoming 'Star Trek 2' would premiere this weekend.

It turns out that the new "Bones" McCoy and star of 'Dredd' was pulling our leg: the video (which actually is titled "Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peek") contains about give seconds of behind-the-scenes 'Trek' footage and about four minutes of Urban surfing, amongst other nonsense.

Alex Kurtzman Interview: Talking ‘People Like Us’ and the Secrets of ‘Star Trek 2′ and ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Alex Kurtzman
Walt Disney Pictures

Alex Kurtzman has crafted a remarkable career as a genre film and television writer/producer. He and partner Roberto Orci have been attached to some of the most beloved science-fiction offerings of the last several years. From televisions ‘Fringe,’ to the wildly successful cinematic ‘Star Trek’ reboot (as well as the sequel that is currently in production), the pair has left a sizable imprint on the industry. As just one example of their upcoming projects, and prior the release of the first, the writing duo has been tapped to write ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'

But roughly eight-years-ago the prolific geek and action-centric scribe felt the urge to explore the possibilities that a smaller, more intimate drama may offer. Inspired by events from his own life, Kurtzman began to draft a script for what became ‘People Like Us,’ the story of two siblings who grew up in different households, who live in vastly divergent worlds and yet come together and connect as adults.

With the film’s release this Friday, June 29th Kurtzman unveils his directorial debut, as well as a small piece of the most private corners of his own experience. It is a film one rarely sees these days. It invites the audience into a, dare I say it, adult conversation about the imperfect nature of relationships and the missteps that we often make that can still manage to bring us to something beautiful.

We had the opportunity to speak with Kurtzman recently about shifting gears for ‘People Like Us’, the movies he credits with changing his life and crafting large-scale event films in a post-Nolan Hollywood.

‘Star Trek’ Doing Worf-Centric Straight-to-DVD Movie?

The 'Star Trek' franchise has become a curious fish, what with the entirety of its 5-series canon being rebooted by J.J. Abrams' ongoing film series, while still keeping some tangential connections.  With Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch now off on their own adventures through the galaxy, is there any room to return to the classic 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' universe?  One star certainly seems to think so.
