The number of reasons to be excited for Antonio Banderas’s new neo-noir The Big Bang are legion. For instance, you should be excited because it’s noir, and Hollywood doesn’t do that enough anymore. Here’s another reason: Sam Elliott. In an unexpected turn, he plays a long-haired, blonde scientist. Here’s another: William Fitchner. You really should have seen him as the Devil’s accountant in Drive Angry 3D. If you didn’t, now’s your chance to make up for it.

Here’s one more reason: The Big Bang trailer debuts right here, right now, exclusively on Cinema Blend.

Look for Anchor Bay Films to release The Big Bang in select theaters on May 13th. While you wait, here’s the movie’s full, official synopsis:
Late one night, Los Angeles private investigator, Ned Cruz (Antonio Banderas) gets a visit from a recently paroled Russian boxer with an intriguing job offer: find Lexie, his missing girlfriend—and the 30-million dollar stash of diamonds she’s hiding. As Detective Cruz sets out to find her, the clues send him into the city’s seediest corners, from a Hollywood action star with a dirty little secret (James Van Der Beek), to an enterprising porn producer who takes a personal interest in his own work (Snoop Dogg), and a kinky waitress with an unusual fetish for particle physics (Autumn Reeser). Lexie proves to be as elusive as she is beautiful and Cruz becomes obsessed with finding her. With time running out, Cruz discovers the trail leads to reclusive billionaire (Sam Elliott), and his physicist (Jimmi Simpson), intent on recreating The Big Bang underneath the New Mexico desert. Tailed by a trio of cops also looking to find the missing diamonds, and with the body count piling up, Cruz soon realizes that what appeared to be a standard missing person’s case is anything but, and could quite possibly bring about the end of the world as we know it.
