Prisoners of the Ghostland

In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage) is sprung from jail by a wealthy warlord, The Governor (Bill Moseley), whose adopted granddaughter Bernice (Sofia Boutella) has run away. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within five days if he doesn’t find the missing girl, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman — and his own path to redemption.


"The wildest movie I've ever made."
- Nic Cage
"It is an excellent introduction to the director for anyone who hasn't dipped into his filmography. And Cage? It's another solid, snarling turn from the hardest working action man in Hollywood."
- Little White Lies
"As envisioned by Japanese director Sion Sono, the brains behind blood-drenched show Tokyo Vampire Hotel and flushed turtle-turned kaiju film Love & Peace, it's a hoot."
- Time Out
