Premiere of Ghost’s new feature film ‘Rite Here Rite Now’ set for June

Author Benedetta Baldin - 1.5.2024

Iconic band Ghost has shared the release plans for “Rite Here Right Now,” the group’s debut feature film. The film combines never-before-seen 2023 concert footage with a narrative story that picks up plot threads from the band’s long-running “Chapters” series. Directed by Ghost’s Tobias Forge, and Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell), “Rite Here Rite Now” will play in cinemas worldwide for a limited time on June 20th and 22nd.

A trailer will be available on May 9th as well as tickets that will go on sale at 2pm BST / 9am EDT / 6am PDT. More details and ticket links will be found at ritehereritenow.com. The film will be distributed by Trafalgar Releasing (also distributors of Taylor Swift‘s Eras Tour concert movie).

Filmed at Ghost’s two sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ hallowed Kia Forum, “Rite Here Rite Now” promises to fully immerse viewers in the technicolor melodrama of the vaunted live ritual that has helped to propel Sweden’s foremost theatrical rock export to Grammy-winning, chart-topping, arena-headlining status the world over.

Loma Vista Recordings will release the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Pre-order launch and additional details will arrive May 9th alongside the full-length trailer and theatre tickets.

Over a decade ago when GHOST got signed to Loma Vista, Tom Whalley (owner and CEO) asked what the story of the band was. He felt telling a story was vital in order to get new fans engaged. I said that because we were a new ‘baby’ band and more importantly we were an ANONYMOUS baby band, there wasn’t really a compelling story to tell. Not yet anyway. But I told him that if he wanted a story, I could come up with one. This film is the fruit of that conversation.

Tobias Forge

Collaborating with Tobias to expand the saga of GHOST into a feature film has been a wicked delight. This movie allowed us to be inspired by everything from silent horror to The Great Rock n’ Roll Swindle, from Ralph Bakshi to KISS Alive II. The influences were many, but above all, the ultimate goal was to make a one-of-a-kind feast not only for GHOST fans, but all lovers of the cinematic alchemy between rock spectacle and spooky delights.
