A film about sex experiments in space from French auteur Claire Denis, starring Juliette Binoche, Robert Pattinson and Andre 3000, High Life looks like a deliciously, deliriously strange slice of sci-fi for 2019.

The premise – that a group of death row inmates have been sent into orbit to harvest energy from black holes – might well be the least interesting thing about it. With early film festival reviews noting Denis’ signature abstract style and nods to Tarkovsky’s philosophical tendencies, this is set to be about as far away from Marvel as you can get – in an erotically charged, self-sustaining space station.

High Life release date: May 10 2019
