Good news for Nicolas Cage fans, his new film Prisoners of the Ghostland will premiere exclusively on AMC+ and Shudder next month. If you have subscribed to the premium streaming bundle AMC+ and Shudder, you will have access to the film, which will debut on both platforms starting on November 19. The film initially premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
The upcoming film is directed by the acclaimed Japanese director Sion Sono and written by Aaron Hendry and Rexa Sixo Safai. Apart from Cage, the film also stars Sofia Boutella, Nick Cassavetes, Bill Moseley, Tak Sakaguchi and Yuzuka Nakaya. Joseph Trapanese composed the original score.
For those who are fans of Cage, you might have noticed that the film features a fun reunion between him and his former Face/Off co-star Cassavetes.
Are you looking forward to watching the film when it becomes available on Shudder?
Read the official plotline for Prisoners of the Ghostland right here:
"PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND is set in the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town where a ruthless bank robber (Cage) is sprung 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."
Nicolas Cage called Prisoners of the Ghostland the ‘wildest movie’ he ever made
Cage isn’t exactly known for a career of subtly but even he thinks this movie is one of the more eccentric films on his resume. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said that this was not only the “wildest script” he’d ever read but it wound up being the “wildest movie” he has ever made. If that doesn’t make you excited to watch it, I’m not sure what will.
While the film won’t be available to watch on Shudder until November 19, there are some other great Cage movies to keep you busy until then. Both of his horror films Mandy and Color Out of Space are currently available to stream on the premium horror service.
