Ghost Movie Title & Release Dates Revealed

Last month, Swedish metal band Ghost teased the production of a movie. Now, the film that fans have affectionately been referring to as the “Ghovie” officially has a title: Rite Here Rite Now. This is a reference to Ghost’s hit song “Square Hammer” off their 2016 sophomore EP Popestar, which repeats the phrase “right here right now” thrice in the chorus and an additional four times in the outro. The spelling choice of “rite” is in line with the band’s religious symbolism. The film’s official website confirms that the movie will be a combination of concert footage from the 2023 Kia Forum shows and a continuation of the narrative from the band’s “Chapter” webisode videos on YouTube. As expected, the plot will revolve around Papa Emeritus IV.

The film will be playing next month in theaters worldwide for two days only: June 20 and 22. However, the poster above states that “additional screenings may vary,” so fans might have the opportunity to watch it outside of these dates. Certain locations will also have branded concession items available, including two different cups and three different popcorn buckets. Two t-shirts (one with the full poster design and one with just the film title) as well as an 18 x 24 poster are currently available for pre-sale on the band’s merch site.

Tickets will be available for purchase on the film’s website starting May 9, which is also the date when the first official trailer is scheduled to premiere. In the meantime, you can watch the band’s webisode series here.
