The Trailer For ‘Hereditary’ Director’s New Horror Movie ‘Midsommar’ Is Out | Film Trailer
Hereditary, one of the scariest horror movies of 2018 directed by Ari Aster, saw great success. Today, the director is coming back with a new creepy trailer about a “Scandinavian folk horror” focusing on a “pagan cult”. Midsommar, comes out in July, and the expectations are very high.
The first trailer was more concerned with setting a spooky mood than revealing many plot details, while this latest promo is heavier on story. Florence Pugh plays a troubled young woman who is invited to mysterious festival in Sweden by her estranged boyfriend. But things don’t get any better when she gets there, as the festival is being run by some sort of weird cult who have scary plans for the American travellers.
“It’s a breakup movie, in the same way that Hereditary is a family tragedy,” Aster shared. “It’s less overtly a horror movie, but it’s still working in that same space. It’s very macabre. But people shouldn’t go in expecting Hereditary.” he added.
Midsommar also stars Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), William Jackson Harper (The Good Place), and Will Poulter (Black Mirror). Get your flower headbands ready for Midsommar, which hits UK cinemas on July 5.
