Since Heredity was a game-changer in 2018, everyone is chomping at the bit to see writer/director Ari Aster’s next feature film, Midsommar, later this Summer. The trailer and poster we’ve seen so far have been bright and celebratory with only slightly unnerving undertones.

The latest poster for Midsommar released today, however, gives us our first real hint that this is not your typical Summer festival. Give it a look-see below.
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. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Will Poulter, and Jack Reynor. Look for it in US theaters beginning July 3rd.
