The drama, which was adapted from Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning play God of Carnage, sees two sets of parents meet up to talk after their children are involved in a fight at school.
Panic Room's Jodie Foster and Chicago actor John C. Reilly portray one couple, while Academy Award-winning pair Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz play the other couple.
The film was shot entirely in France, due to Polanski's ongoing legal troubles in the US.
Carnage will make its North American premiere at the New York Film Festival in September.
