Ahead of the October 8th Blu-ray and DVD release of the original theatrical version of Ari Aster's Midsommar, we've just learned that A24 will be celebrating Labor Day by releasing the unrated extended cut of the film in select theaters this weekend!
The film will screen over a four-day span beginning Friday, August 30th and running through Tuesday, September 3rd. The extended cut, which recently held its World Premiere in New York City, features new and extended footage, and runs for nearly 3 hours!
"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").
