The film features Cage and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman, 2017’s The Mummy) in the lead roles. Cage plays a jailed bank robber that is tasked with finding The Governor’s missing granddaughter in exchange for his own freedom. However, Cage only has five days to do so and is wearing a suit that will self-destruct, thus making sure he doesn’t escape.

“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,” reads the synopsis of the film. “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.”

Prisoners of the Ghostland is directed by Japanese filmmaker and author Sion Sono, with a script from Aaron Henry (Inhumans) and Reza Sixo Safai (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night). This marks Cage’s next project after the recent release of Pig, which garnered critical praise for not only the film but Cage’s performance as a chef turned truffle hunter who sets out to recover his stolen truffle pig.
