The first trailer for The Big Bang has hit the web. Directed by Tony Krantz (Otis), the film stars Antonio Banderas as a private detective who is hired to find a missing stripper. That’s about all the plot I’m able to boil down because, judging from the tilt-heavy trailer, this flick looks to be a bit of a mind-bender in the vein of Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The Big Bang stars Banderas, William Fichtner, James Van Der Beek, Snoop Dogg, Delroy Lindo and Rebecca Mader. Anchor Bay Films is set to release the film on May 13th.

Antonio Banderas is a busy man these days. Currently, the Desperado star has five projects in various forms of production including Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin That I Inhabit due next year. Variety is now reporting that Banderas has also committed to the psychological thriller Solo, which the star will direct as well. This will mark Banderas’ third-outing as a director, having helmed 1999’s Crazy in Alabama and the 2006 film Summer Rain.
Written by Erik Jendresen, who penned the currently-in-development The Big Bang, also starring Banderas, Solo is said to be a sci-fi thriller about a colonel suffering from post-conflict trauma. Banderas is set to star as the colonel in the film, which is slated to shoot next year for a 2012 release. Solo will be produced by Banderas’ Green Moon label.
While I get to interview many people for Collider, they’re usually done at a hotel and almost always feel rushed. That’s because a press junket has to accommodate journalists from around the world and everyone needs time with people promoting the movie or TV show. A typical TV interview is 4 minutes…as you can imagine, it’s hard to get more than a sound bite. That’s why I love it when I’m able to talk with people for an extended amount of time, as it lets you have a real conversation.
And that’s what happened last week with Rebecca Mader. Instead of the usual hotel interview, I met her at a spot on Wilshire Blvd. (it’s in Los Angeles) and we conducted an awesome extended interview. Not only did we cover her work on Lost (she plays Charlotte Lewis), but we were able to talk about how she transitioned from modeling into acting, her early work on Love Monkey and Justice, and so much more. It’s a great interview so hit the jump and check it out. As usual, I’ve listed what we talked about above the video:
