Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 234,324 views on Wednesday, 3 July 2019 our article of the day is Midsommar (film).
Midsommar is a 2019 folk horror film written and directed by Ari Aster and starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, and Will Poulter. It follows a group of friends who travel to Sweden for a festival that only occurs every ninety years, only to find themselves directly in the hands of a pagan cult.
A co-production between the United States and Sweden, the film was initially pitched as a straightforward slasher film set amongst Swedish cultists. Aster devised a screenplay using elements of this concept but made a deteriorating relationship the central conflict after he had experienced a difficult breakup. The film was shot on location in Budapest, Hungary in the summer and fall of 2018.
Midsommar was released in the United States on July 3, 2019.
