I’m frequently sent information on upcoming television, DVD/Blu-ray and movie news. I’ll be compiling and sharing the best and most interesting news with you here each week.

DreamWorks Pictures PEOPLE LIKE US

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. Michelle Pfeiffer and Olivia Wilde co-star.

PEOPLE LIKE US opens in theatres everywhere on June 29th!
