This summer, let the festivities begin! A24 has revealed the Midsommar teaser trailer and poster that preview the new film from Hereditary writer and director Ari Aster. You can watch the Midsommar teaser using the player above and you’ll find the poster below.

Opening in theaters on August 9, Midsommar stars Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) and Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) as a couple that travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

The movie also stars William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgran, Archie Madekwe, Ellora Torchia, and Will Poulter.

The film, shot in Budapest, Hungary, was produced by Lars Knudsen.
