Midsommar Trailer

"You can't speak… you can't move… But this opens you up… It breaks down your defenses… Trust me." A24 has unveiled a teaser trailer for Ari Aster's new cult horror film Midsommar, the follow-up to his highly acclaimed feature debut Hereditary. A24 teamed up with Aster to develop and produce this after releasing Hereditary, and will drop it in theaters in August in the summer (of course). Midsommar is about a woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a trip to a small Swedish village, where the encounter a pagan cult conducting a "violent and bizarre" ritual. Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor star as the couple, along with Will Poulter, Julia Ragnarsson, William Jackson Harper, Björn Andrésen, Anna Åström, and Liv Mjönes. This is nuts!! I dig the bright colors, and all the floral elements, despite how horrific it looks.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ari Aster's Midsommar, direct from A24's YouTube:

Florence Pugh & Jack Reynor play a couple that 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 experience at the hands of a pagan cult. Midsommar is directed by American filmmaker Ari Aster, his second feature after the hit horror film Hereditary previously, and numerous short films as well. Produced by Lars Knudsen and Patrik Andersson, co-produced by Beau Ferris. A24 will release Aster's Midsommar in select theaters starting on July 3rd this midsummer. First impression? Who's freaked out?

I've never been as fucked up by a movie as I was by hereditary. I feel like that movie divided people but I thought it was a modern masterpiece. I cant wait for this.

3 a person who likes original concepts, but not so much horror/gore (I liked the VVitch though) would you recommend it?

There is a solid amount of gore but the movie does its damage on an emotional level. For me at least, it was the dramatic side of the film that haunted me. On a side note I did not care for the Witch haha.

The Witch was good (although I had my reservations before seeing it) ...

I loved The Witch and I thought Hereditary was great too. I'm a bit like you, I don't like/watch too much horror. But I really like the ones that take their time and build up a sense of dread and suspense instead of relying on jumpscares etc. I would definitely recommend Hereditary. Toni Collette is so good in it, too.

Toni Colette and the kid who played her son. I'm drawing s blank on his name. But he definately stood out.

You and I are of like minds. I'll check out Hereditary. Thanks!

I don't know what to make of this.

WHERE'S NICOLAS CAGE?!? THE BEEES! THE BEEEES! NOT THE BEEES! Cinematography looks beautiful. Concept is very WICKER MAN-ish...

To die among daisies. What more could you ask for?

Oh yes. All in. The ritual going summer holidays 😀

The cult ending part was my least favorite about Hereditary. I feel like this might be a second-rate Jordan Peele flick, i.e. horror but without any relevance to real life (unlike Get Out).
