Antonio Banderas' latest thriller will explode on Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will release 'The Big Bang' on Blu-ray on May 24.

Bending the laws of the film noir genre, 'The Big Bang' dazzles with sharp dialogue, colorful characters, hidden agendas, and shocking twists that will leave audiences guessing until the very last frame.

Directed by Tony Krantz (producer of 'Mulholland Dr.,' and Fox’s “24”), written by Emmy® award winner Erik Jendresen (“Band of Brothers”) and featuring the debut solo soundtrack by The Smiths’ legend Johnny Marr, 'The Big Bang' is a neo-noir detective thriller for the 21st century. The film also stars Thomas Kretschmann ('King Kong,' 'Valkyrie'), William Fichtner ('Drive Angry,' 'Date Night,' “Prison Break”), Robert Maillet ('Sherlock Holmes,' '300') with Delroy Lindo ('Gone in 60 Seconds,' “The Chicago Code”).

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include a filmmaker's commentary, behind the scenes featurette, extended scenes, and a trailer.

Suggested list price will be $34.99.
