“Annette” brings together two favorites of independent cinema, Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, as a glamorous celebrity couple whose lives are upended by the arrival of their first child, “a mysterious girl with a special destiny.”

The trailer, released on Monday, indicates this will be another visually arresting and wildly inventive film from Leos Carax.

It will be the first English-language film for the director, known for dark and ambitious arthouse favorites “Holy Motors” and “Les Amants du Pont Neuf.”

The film will run as part of the main competition for the Palme D’Or, with the jury this year headed by United States director Spike Lee.
