In the film Midsommar, the festivities of this Swedish holiday turn dark and frightening. The story is centered on a young American couple, Christian and Dani, played by Jack Reynor and Florence Pugh respectively, who are having difficulties in their relationship. Dani suffers a severe personal tragedy. Afterward, they decide to go to rural Sweden for a vacation with their friends.
It turns out that they end up at a small village that is hosting a festival that is held once every 90 years. Unfortunately, this festival is not what it appears to be, and it includes dark and disturbing rituals.
Midsommar premiered at a pre-screening on June 18, 2019, at the Alamo Drafthouse in New York City. It is scheduled for release on July 3, 2019, in the United States and on July 10, 2019, in Sweden, and there are English and Swedish versions of this film. The distribution company is A24.
Midsommar was written and directed by Ari Aster. This is his second major film. The first was Hereditary in 2018. In addition to Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor, this movie also stars William Jackson Harper, Will Poulter, Vilhelm Blomgren, Archie Madekwe, and Ellora Torchia. Although Midsommar is set in Sweden, it was filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary.
Midsommar has received very good reviews, and it currently has an aggregate score of 81% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics’ consensus is, “Ambitious, impressively crafted, and above all unsettling, Midsommar further proves writer-director Ari Aster is a horror auteur to be reckoned with.”
Will Midsommar be coming to Netflix in the future?
As always, the main question we are asking here is whether or not Midsommar will be coming to Netflix in the future.
Unfortunately, it is too early to tell if Midsommar will come to Netflix.
When trying to predict whether a film will come to Netflix, the first place to look is the distribution company. Sometimes, once you know that, you will automatically know one way or another. Some distribution companies have contracts with Netflix so that we can know for sure that their films will be coming. Others have exclusive contracts with other streaming services, such as Hulu or HBO, which means that we can be certain that none of their films will come. At present, A24 does not appear to have any exclusive contracts with anyone, so streaming rights for each film will be negotiated separately.
There are rumors floating around that Apple may be interested in purchasing A24, but as of the time of the writing of this article, this has not yet happened. A24 seems to be keeping its options open, and it has negotiated deals with all of the major streaming companies to produce original content for them.
Because of this, it is possible that Midsommar will come to Netflix, but there is no way to know for sure at this time. In the meantime, there are other creepy shows on Netflix that might be of interest to you. Some of these shows are;
- Murder Mystery
- The Ritual (also set in Sweden)
- Netflix Original Series, The Society.
