New Midsommar trailer: An unhinged 90-year celebration is about to begin
Ari Aster's debut film Hereditary quickly become one of the must-see horror films of last year and his new film, Midsommar, is close to the top of the list again in 2019. We already got a good look at what's in-store when the first teaser trailer was dropped a couple of months ago. Judging by what we've been shown so far the hype is well-deserved, with The Wicker Man vibes explored in a bit more detail this time.
Although, Aster sees it differently, telling Entertainment Weekly recently:
“The film is definitely mining the same vein as Wicker Man was working, but as a piece of folk-horror, it’s pretty irreverent in that it doesn’t really stay comfortably on that route," He went on to say, "That’s why I’m making sure to describe it as a fairytale. It’s not a million miles away from something like Alice in Wonderland. It’s a psychedelic film. But there are no solid [comparisons] that I can hand you. I’m hoping that the film feels pretty singular and is a trip.”
Take a look for yourself and enjoy the creepy full trailer above for Midsommar.
Dani and Christian 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.
Aster has once again penned the script, with the cast starring Florence Pugh, Will Poulter, William Jackson Harper and Jack Reynor.
Midsommar drops in mid-summer on 3rd July in the US and 5th July in the UK.
