I’ve found a few trailers that have been released over the past few weeks. I’m not so sure they deserve their own dedicated articles, so I’ve stuffed them all into this one.
The new film from Hereditary director Ari Aster, Midsommar recently started getting a load of positive vibes from critics after the first screening.
“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.”
Midsommar is in theaters from July 3, 2019.
