Let the festivities begin! A24 has released a new trailer for Ari Aster’s “dread-soaked” ‘Midsommar’ starring Florence Pugh.
Written and directed by Aster, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, and Will Poulter join Pugh on the cast.
“Rule of thumb: if you’re in a dark place, do not join your shitty boyfriend and his friends on their trip to rural Sweden.”
Aster himself describes his new film as “a dark break-up movie that becomes a horror film.”
The film is set for a U.S. release of July 3rd.
A couple travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
