Ari Aster‘s Midsommar is arriving on Digital and On Demand September 24 from A24, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital) and DVD October 8 from Lionsgate, but there’s only one place you’ll be able to watch the extended Director’s Cut that was released in theaters this past weekend. The home video release of the Director’s Cut is exclusive to Apple TV.
The iTunes store notes, “Your purchase of Midsommar comes with Ari Aster’s extended and unrated director’s cut, exclusive to Apple TV. Plus go behind the scenes with the cast and crew of Midsommar in an exclusive featurette, and watch the creation of Hälsingland in time-lapse footage of the elaborate and meticulous set construction.”
This “iTunes Extra” content will be available with the digital release on September 24.
“After witnessing the more comprehensive version of Aster’s vision in this (nearly) three-hour film, I’m happy to say I prefer this cut in spades.”
Thanks to reader Mike Heidbreder for the heads up.
