Now with the new release date in the smack dab of mid-summer, Ari Aster’s Hereditary follow-up Midsommar has unveiled a new trailer courtesy of A24. While the first preview reveled in the vibrant terrifying imagery, this one adds more, but also expands our story as we see the beginnings of the trip and more about the characters, who attend a celebration turned terrifying.
Starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, and Will Poulter the film follows a young couple’s vacation to a Swedish village, where they discover the residents’ peculiar traditions and rituals. As one of the main characters carries pain from a recently deceased loved one, these rituals become cloaked in a sense of dread.
Also starring William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Archie Madekwe, and Ellora Torchia, see the new trailer and poster below.
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
Midsommar opens on July 3.
