Prisoners of the Ghostland

Prisoners of the Ghostland

A ruthless bank robber Hero (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. Prisoners of the Ghostland is an English language debut by the Japanese director Sion Sono that premiered at Sundance 2021.
