Ari Aster, the filmmaker behind last year’s breakout horror film Hereditary, returned this summer with the unnerving and viscerally disturbing sun-soaked horror film Midsommar (read our review), and we've learned this week that the film will be arriving on Digital and On Demand September 24th from A24, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), and DVD October 8th from Lionsgate.
It's important to unfortunately note that the director's cut of Midsommar will not be included on this release, and there are currently no details on if or when it'll be distributed on home video. Check out the cover art and more info via the press release below.
"After a family tragedy, a young American couple joins some friends at a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that grow increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster, comes this dread-soaked cinematic fairy tale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight."
The film stars Florence Pugh (upcoming Black Widow and Little Women) as a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip to a remote Swedish village for a midsummer festival, which becomes more and more sinister as the days pass. The film also stars Jack Reynor (Kin, Free Fire, TV’s "Strange Angel"), William Jackson Harper (TV’s "The Good Place", They Remain), and Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, The Revenant).
Midsommar is executive produced by Philip Westgren (Hellboy), Fredrik Heinig (Thelma), and Ben Rimmer (Ibiza, TV’s "Mr Selfridge").
