Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Shot throughout Ghost‘s two sold-out shows at Los Angeles’s hallowed Kia Forum, “Rite Here Rite Now” is a unique feature-length film that combines never-before-seen 2023 concert footage of Grammy Award-winning rock band Ghost with a narrative story that picks up plot threads from the band’s long-running “Chapters” series.

Check out the first trailer from “Rite Here Rite Now” below, along with a live version of “Absolution” further down in this article.

Directed by Ghost‘s Tobias Forge and Alex Ross Perry (“Her Smell”), “Rite Here Rite Now” fully immerses 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.

The film will launch in cinemas globally on June 20 and June 22 only. Full trailer launch and cinema tickets will be available beginning Thursday, May 9. Worldwide screening details and ticket links will be revealed at ritehereritenow.com at 2 PM BST / 9 AM EDT / 6 AM PDT. Fans are encouraged to sign up for further information.

“Rite Here Rite Now” is, however, so much more than a concert movie. Ghost‘s debut feature film combines live performance from the two-night finale of the band’s “Re-Imperatour” U.S.A. 2023 with a narrative story that picks up plot threads from the band’s long-running “Chapters” series. The result is an utterly unique phantasmagorical blend: Flesh and bone renditions of favorites from all five of Ghost‘s albums as well as the RIAA platinum-certified “Mary On A Cross” and more are interwoven with the silver screen debuts of a few faces familiar to the band’s legions of fans — all interacting behind the scenes with Ghost‘s Papa Emeritus IV, as his future and fate lay in the hands of the Ministry.

Whether you’re a devoted disciple looking to relive treasured memories of the Ghost live spectacle or among the curious uninitiated, “Rite Here Rite Now” will put you right there: putting your phones down and living in the moment — as a shadow of uncertainty looms — completely spellbound and in the thrall of this bombastic yet intimate cinematic portrait of Ghost.

The original motion picture soundtrack to “Rite Here Rite Now” will be released via Loma Vista Recordings. Pre-order launch and additional details will complement the film’s cinema on-sale date of May 9. Sign up for updates HERE.

Forge explained: “Over a decade ago when Ghost got signed to Loma VistaTom 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.”

Director Alex Ross Perry said: “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.”

Kymberli Frueh, SVP of programming and content acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing, added: “The mystery, mystique, and musical style of Ghost has created such a dedicated allegiance to the band. Our cinemas provide the perfect immersive experience to unite fans as a community and experience GHOST‘s elaborate performances with big screens and big sound.”
