Ari Aster’s Midsommar arrives on Blu-ray/DVD beginning October 8th, but if you want to see the nearly-three-hours Director’s Cut, you’ll need to be an Apple TV subscriber. A tip of the hat to our friends at Bloody Disgusting for breaking this news.
The iTunes store states: “Your purchase of Midsommar comes with Ari Aster’s extended and unrated director’s cut, exclusive to Apple TV. Plus go behind the scenes with the cast and crew of Midsommar in an exclusive featurette, and watch the creation of Hälsingland in time-lapse footage of the elaborate and meticulous set construction.”
Subscribers will be able to experience the Director’s Cut of Midsommar beginning September 24th.
If you’ve missed Midsommar when it was in theaters, check out the synopsis and trailer below.
A couple travel to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled midsummer festival, but what begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Will Poulter, and Jack Reynor.
