As we’ve previously reported, the film follows “a couple that travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival,” where “what begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.”


Sing Street’s Jack Reynor, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’s Will Poulter, and Professor Chidi Anagonye himself, William Jackson Harper, round out the cast. Aster says Midsommar will be his last horror movie “for a long time,” so let us savor this lead up to the film’s August 9 release date.
