A couple named Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) head to a Swedish town to visit a friend for a special retreat that becomes more sinister with each creepy breath in the new unsettling trailer for A24’s Midsommar. “Christian says you’ve got some special thing planned,” Dani asks their friend as they and a group of others arrive on what initially looks to be an idyllic wooded property.
“Yeah, it’s like a crazy nine-day festival,” the friend explains. “It only happens every 90 years.”
Directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary), Midsommar also stars Will Poulter, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Ellora Torchia and Archie Madekwe. Appropriate to its name, the film is expected to arrive sometime this summer.
In the trailer, the group is greeted by a welcoming group, donned in white and wearing flower crowns, but soon ritualistic patterns emerge, hinting that the festival is run by a cult. “Hello, there you are… You can’t speak… You can’t move,” one cult member says between scenes of the group taking in terrifying drawings in a building that depict violent imagery and slowly participating in a number of unnerving rituals, including imbibing some smoky concoction. “But this opens you up to the influence and it breaks down your defenses. Trust me. All right?”
