In a stunning turn of events, the reboot of the 1980s cult classic “Road House” has taken Amazon Prime Video by storm, amassing a jaw-dropping 50 million global viewers within its first two weekends. Conor McGregor reacted to this news with just a blink emoji on his Twitter handle.

The film, directed by Doug Liman and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Daniela Melchior, and Conor McGregor in his feature film debut, has shattered all previous records for Amazon-exclusive movies.

“Road House,” originally released in 1989, was a gritty action flick that became a cult favorite. The modern adaptation, shot with IMAX cameras, brings a fresh twist to the tale. Set in a newly refurbished roadside bar, the film follows ex-UFC fighter Dalton (played by Gyllenhaal) as he takes on the role of a bouncer in a Florida Keys establishment. But this paradise hides dark secrets, and Dalton soon finds himself embroiled in a battle against corruption and violence.

Conor McGregor’s Hollywood Debut

Conor McGregor, the former UFC two-division champion, makes his silver screen debut in “Road House.” Known for his charisma and fighting prowess, McGregor seamlessly transitions from the octagon to the big screen. His portrayal in the film has garnered praise, and fans are loving his performance alongside Gyllenhaal and the rest of the stellar cast.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios, expressed her excitement about the film’s success: “The groundbreaking, successful debut of ‘Road House’ is a testament to the hard work and commitment from the entire filmmaking team. The world is absolutely loving this entertaining, action-packed ride anchored by the performances of Jake, Conor McGregor, Daniela Melchior, and the rest of our stellar cast.”

“It’s great to see the film taking off with both fans of the iconic original as well as a huge turnout from new audiences. This incredible film is really giving everyone something to talk about, and we couldn’t be more proud!” 1

Liman’s Frustration and the Big Screen Debate

Director Doug Liman initially expressed disappointment that “Road House” wasn’t getting a theatrical release. He believed that movies like this deserved to be seen on the big screen. Liman’s concerns echo the ongoing debate about the future of movie theaters in the streaming era. Despite this, the film’s premiere at the 2024 SXSW Film Festival was met with enthusiasm, proving that audiences still crave the communal experience of cinema.
