Ari Aster Midsommar

Ari Aster’s Hereditary follow-up feature is the mysterious Scandinavian folk horror Midsommar. After a couple of animated teasers crept out from A24’s twitter account, we finally have a first look at a teaser trailer.

Written and directed by Aster, Midsommar stars Florence Pugh (Fighting With My Family), Jack Reynor (Free Fire), Will Poulter (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), and William Jackson Harper (The Good Place).

The film follows a couple who travel to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown, which is famous for its mid-summer festival. But what begins as an idyllic vacation soon turns into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

Midsommar will hit theaters on August 9, 2019. Check out the trailer and poster below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
