Ari Aster's Midsommar gets bumped forward into Independence Day weekend


Yeah, but can we just get it right now?

Ari Aster's follow up to Hereditary has shifted its release from August 9 to July 3, just in time for you to celebrate the independence of our great United States of America with colorful blasts of explosive fear-diarrhea.

Midsommar follows a troubled young couple as they celebrate a nine-day festival that happens once every 90 years with a bunch of puritanical hippie psychos, and it's the first film that I think has the chops to get the weird-flower-people-cult formula right since the original Wicker Man. Every shot looks blooming, colorful, and plenty eerie, and I can't wait to see it. I know early-spring might not count as midsummer, but could we just have it now? Please?

Hereditary was a deep dive into familial horror that I won't soon wipe from my psyche, and though Midsommar looks to be more focused on mysterious strangeness than abject horror, I have no doubt it'll be something worth witnessing.
