Sommar never ends…let’s continue with the festivities.
From writer/director Ari Aster (Hereditary), MIDSOMMAR the Director’s Cut, featuring new scenes and extended footage, will be in select theaters nationwide this weekend! Tickets for the exclusive nationwide release are available to purchase here.
After a family tragedy, a young American couple joins some friends at a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that grow increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster (Hereditary), comes this dread-soaked cinematic fairy tale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
The film stars Florence Pugh (upcoming Black Widow and Little Women) as a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip to a remote Swedish village for a midsummer festival, which becomes more and more sinister as the days pass. The Rotten Tomato Certified Fresh film also stars Jack Reynor (Kin, Free Fire, TV’s Strange Angel), William Jackson Harper (TV’s The Good Place, They Remain, TV’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), and Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Detroit, The Revenant). Executive produced by Philip Westgren (Hellboy), Fredrik Heinig (Thelma), and Ben Rimmer (Ibiza, TV’s Mr. Selfridge).
Shannon McGrew says that “[T]he film may not be for everyone, but at the end of the day, it’s another life-changing film that will stay with me long after the flurry of the press has come and gone. MIDSOMMAR is truly a masterful work of art that only comes around every 90 years or so and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to witness it.”
The unnerving and viscerally disturbing sun-soaked horror film MIDSOMMAR will be arriving on Digital and On Demand September 24 from A24, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), and DVD October 8 from Lionsgate.
