The Little Drummer Girl actress Florence Pugh stars as Dani, who visits a friend’s hometown in Sweden alongside her boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor). The setting is sun-drenched and idyllic, but the trailer is filled with foreboding and strange images…

We also see glimpses of The Good Place star William Jackson Harper, as well as Bandersnatch‘s Will Poulter, as events take a turn for the creepy.

Last year, Aster shocked audiences with his 2018 horror movie Hereditary which left film fans seriously unsettled. Will Midsommar have the same effect?
