A new Collector’s Edition of Ari Aster’s director’s cut for Midsommar is on the way, and it includes some nice extras and very special packaging.
A listing on A24’s website shows that the $45 USD Collector’s Edition comes with the 171-minute director’s cut of the film in a Blu-ray case that’s covered in a Hårga-yellow slipcase. It also includes a 62-page booklet featuring original art from artist Ragnar Persson. The book features a foreword from none other than acclaimed Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.
The 171-minute director’s cut of Midsommar is 33 minutes longer than the theatrical edition. The Collector’s Edition is expected to begin shipping on July 20.
Scorsese’s connection to Midsommar is not totally out of the blue, as The Irishman director is a big fan of Aster’s work. He said Aster’s earlier movie, Hereditary, was “remarkable.”
After the big success of Midsommar, which stars Florence Pugh, Aster is expected to make a lengthy “nightmare comedy.” Given the critical acclaim of Hereditary and Midsommar, we have high hopes for whatever Aster does next.
