Summer may be coming to a close, but sommar is just beginning this Labor Day weekend. Following its world premiere earlier this month in New York City, Ari Aster's unrated director's cut of Midsommar is coming to select theaters this weekend.

Brimming with new footage and extended scenes that give viewers a more in-depth look at the horrifyingly hypnotic festivities of Midsommar, the unrated director's cut will be released by A24 in select theaters across the US over a four-day span beginning Friday, August 30th and running through Tuesday, September 3rd. Check here to see if the Midsommar director's cut will be playing at a theater near you.

You can watch a new promo video for the director's cut below, and in case you missed it, check here to catch up on our previous coverage of Midsommar, including our Corpse Club episode on the film and details on the October 8th Blu-ray and DVD release of the movie's original theatrical version.

Written and directed by Ari Aster, Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren,
Archie Madekwe, Ellora Torchia, and Will Poulter.

Synopsis: "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."
