People who like people, especially beautiful people with heartwarming family stories of redemption that are based on true life events.

THREE GOOD REASONS

  • 1With Banks and Pine working the leading roles, the film stars two highly sought-after actors. But the supporting cast is nothing to sneeze at either: Olivia Wilde, Philip Baker Hall, Mark Duplass, Jon Favreau, and Michelle Pfeiffer help to round out the cast.
  • 2Not every movie this summer needs CGI, explosions, and superheroes to be entertaining.
  • 3Writer/director/producer Alex Kurtzman wanted to create a film that felt big, while remaining an intimate family drama at heart. Even though this is Kurtzman’s first time directing, he’s no stranger to big movies, having penned (with Roberto Orci) “Transformers” (2007), “Star Trek” (2009), and “Cowboys & Aliens” (2011).

Kurtzman co-wrote and co-produced the film with long-time creative partner Orci. The duo has a litany of impressive credits, in both film and television, including creating J.J. Abram’s “Fringe” (2008). Having just completed work on the “Star Trek” sequel, slated for release in 2013, Kurtzman and Orci recently signed on to write and produce two more major motion picture reboots: “Van Helsing” (2004) and “The Mummy” (1999). And to make their agent even happier, the team is also rewriting the sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man” (2012).
