Adam Driver is preparing fans for his film musical debut by being the centerpiece of the latest image released to tease the film in the lead up to its release date. The image in question (seen above) shows Driver in dark-blue lighting as hooded individuals are apparently surrounding him.

The film, which stars both Driver and Marion Cotillard, follows Henry (a stand-up comedian) and Ann’s (an opera singer) first meeting and subsequent romantical involvement. Under the spotlight, they form a passionate and glamorous couple, and with the birth of their first child — a mysterious little girl with an exceptional destiny — their lives are turned upside down.

“Usually, you decode a director – ‘Okay, they don’t like this, they want me to do this’ – and then you kind of coast,” Driver said when talking about the film’s unique directorial style. “But there were days where he seemed to change how he was working within the film. That’s what makes him a good conductor, I guess.”

The film is directed by Leos Carax, a French film director, critic and writer. Carax is noted for his poetic style and tortured depictions of love, and if that’s not indicative of what may be expected from “Annette,” I don’t know what is.

In fact, it’s that same free-styled, loose prose-based environment, which Driver attributed to helping him decode, analyze his character. Driver described it as the sort of environment that gave the actor the space to explore his character in different ways, leading to an animalistic performance partially inspired by the behavior of gorillas.

“I remember us talking initially about how much he’s a person that lives in his body,” says Driver of McHenry. “There’s a lot of juxtaposition. He’s smoking but also eating a banana. He’s health-conscious but also ironic. Where does that energy go when suddenly how he gets it out is not there anymore?”

“Annette” comes to U.S. cinemas on August 6, 2021.
