Watch: Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks talk character-driven 'People Like Us'
Why the stars of 'Star Trek' and 'Hunger Games' gravitated toward the sibling drama
Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks have both put in their time in big franchise movies -- Pine as Captain Kirk in the recent "Star Trek" reboot and Banks as Effie Trinket in "Hunger Games" (you may also remember her stint as J. Jonah Jameson's assistant in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films). But this summer they headline a very different kind of movie: the character-driven drama "People Like Us."
It's an unusual movie for the summer season, but as Pine and Banks explain they didn't sign up for the movie based on a release date. They signed on because of the script and the characters.
And of course both actors will still return to the franchises they helped launch: Pine's "Star Trek II" is due in theaters May 17, 2013, while "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is scheduled for Nov. 22, 2013.
"People Like Us" opens in theaters June 29
