GHOST Have Announced Their First Movie & It’s Coming To Aussie Cinemas

GHOST have announced the imminent arrival of their first-ever movie, RITE HERE RITE NOW. The flick will be hitting Aussie cinemas for two days only in June of 2024.

Directed by US filmmaker Alex Ross Perry and GHOST frontman Papa Emeritus himself, Tobias Forge, RITE HERE RITE NOW combines never-before-seen 2023 concert footage of the GRAMMY award-winning rockers, interwoven with a narrative story that 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,” Forge explained re: the film’s narrative in a press statement.

“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.”

Shot over the course of GHOST’s two sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ hallowed Kia Forum, RITE HERE RITE NOW promises to “fully immerse viewers in the technicolour 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”.

It’s copping a worldwide release for two days only on 20th and 22nd June 2024, with the full trailer, Australian cinema screening details and ticket links dropping this Thursday, 9th March at 11pm AEST right here.
