A gorgeous new poster for upcoming horror Midsommar has arrived, and it also reveals the film’s US release date: 3 July. Cinema-goers in the UK won’t have to wait too long after to see it though, with the film hitting UK screens on 5 July.

Midsommar is written and directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary). It stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson and Will Poulter. Lars Knudsen produces.

Here’s a synopsis for the film:

Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) 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 is in UK cinemas from 5 July 2019. Get all the latest horror news with every issue of SciFiNow.
