Following last month’s intriguing first teaser, Ghost have just announced their debut feature film, Rite Here Rite Now.

The band will be bringing their highly-anticipated movie to cinemas for two nights on June 20 and 22, courtesy of Trafalgar Releasing. It’s both a concert film – captured at their two-night stint at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on the epic Re-Imperatour – as well as a narrative story, which ‘picks up plot threads from the band’s long-running webisode series’.

“Over a decade ago when Ghost got signed to Loma Vista, Tom Whalley [owner and CEO] asked what the story of the band was,” begins mainman Tobias Forge, speaking about Rite Here Rite Now. “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 adds that, “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.”

“The mystery, mystique, and musical style of Ghost has created such a dedicated allegiance to the band,” continues Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing. “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.”

The first poster for Rite Here Rite Now is available to marvel at in all its detail below, while a proper trailer will launch on Thursday, May 9 (along with tickets going on sale over at There’ll also be an accompanying soundtrack, released via Loma Vista, with details of that arriving soon, too.
