Bright Young Things

.
I don't really know how A24 can get away with calling this trailer a "teaser" when in its 100 seconds of footage it's way more information than I needed to sell me on Ari Aster's latest called Midsommar -- we shared the poster and a real teaser last week -- but then I'm perhaps not the best judge...

... since I was on board with this a full year back after seeing Hereditary the first time. I am on board with Ari Aster for the rest of my life, more or less. So perhaps y'all will be better judges. But there's a lot to see in here, at least in flashes, so only watch it if you really feel the itch...

Midsommar is out on August 9th.
Breathe it in deep, y'all...

Florence Pugh has to be one of the easiest people on the planet to film. Every image of her is mesmerizing.

Reminds me of Wicker Man.

Yeah this is basically the first post I've done about it where I didn't use the words "wicker man" -- I'm sure Ari Aster is more than aware of Wicker Man though, I don't think we need to worry about him trying to pretend WM doesn't exist and he came up with this all on his own :)
