[UPDATE] New UK Trailer and Posters for Sion Sono’s PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND, Starring Nicolas Cage

Prisoners of the Ghostland
Cage's latest oddity comes to UK cinemas and digital in September.

Nicolas Cage continues his quest to take on the most bizarre projects on offer by teaming with cult Japanese director Sion Sono for Prisoners of the Ghostland.

Described by Cage as "the wildest movie I’ve ever made," Prisoners of the Ghostland sees Sono make his English-language debut. Set in a post-apocalyptic frontier, the film sees Cage play a bank robber set free Snake Plissken style to retrieve the missing granddaughter (Sofia Boutella) of a warlord (Bill Moseley).

Nick Cassavettes, Tak Sakaguchi and Yuzuka Nakaya also star.

Prisoners of the Ghostland is in UK cinemas and on digital from September 17th, following its UK premiere at FrightFest on August 28th.

Check out the trailer and a pair of posters below.




The official synopsis reads:

In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage) is sprung from jail by wealthy warlord The Governor (Bill Moseley), whose adopted granddaughter Bernice (Sofia Boutella) has gone missing. The Governor offers the prisoner his freedom in exchange for retrieving the runaway. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within five days, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman— and his own path to redemption.
