The Blu-ray cover for director Sion Sono’s action-sci-fi-horror film, ‘Prisoners of the Ghostland.’

Sometimes the best way for people to save themselves and uncover their true purpose in life is to embark on a vital journey to rescue someone else. That’s certainly the case for Nicolas Cage‘s anti-hero in the new action-sci-fi movie, ‘Prisoners of the Ghostland.’ The Oscar-winning actor’s character is promised freedom and redemption in his own life if he finds and protects the life of a dangerous warlord’s granddaughter in the tantalizing horror drama.

Aaron Hendry and Rexa Sixo Safai (‘Western Wonderland’) wrote ‘Prisoners of the Ghostland,’ which was helmed by acclaimed Japanese director, Sion Sono (‘Why Don’t You Play in Hell’). In addition to Cage, the film also stars Sofia Boutella (‘The Mummy‘), Nick Cassavetes (‘Face/Off’), Bill Moseley (‘Texas Chainsaw’ franchise), Tak Sakaguchi (‘Tokyo Tribe’) and Yuzuka Nakaya (‘The Forest of Love’).

‘Prisoners of the Ghostland’ is set in the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, where a ruthless bank robber (Cage) is released from jail by wealthy warlord The Governor (Moseley), whose adopted granddaughter, Bernice (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 three days, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman—and his own path to redemption.
