After delivering emotion-deadening blockbusters like "Transfomers" and "Cowboys & Aliens," can producers and writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci do nuanced dramedy? That's the question at the center of "People Like Us," Kurtzman's directorial debut that he penned and produced with Orci, with Jody Lambert also throwing in a hand on the script.

After delivering emotion-deadening blockbusters like "Transfomers" and "Cowboys & Aliens," can producers and writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci do nuanced dramedy? That's the question at the center of "People Like Us," Kurtzman's directorial debut that he penned and produced with Orci, with Jody Lambert also throwing in a hand on the script.

The trailer for the film dropped yesterday, and it presented a glossy story, led by Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks, about a man with money troubles who discovers that his father, a famous record producer, has passed away. He's left with the task of delivering over $100,000 to a mysterious woman and her son, and soon discovers that she's actually a half-sister that he never knew about. The script we read was a bit more hard-hitting dramatically than what is presented in the trailer (and these pleasant stills), so we hope that tone is still intact.

Michelle Pfieffer, Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass and Simon Baker Hall round out the cast, and "People Like Us" opens on June 29th.
