Amazon Lands Its Biggest Movie Streaming Debut With ‘Road House.’

  • Posted On:April 03, 2024

The remake of the 1989 action classic is Amazon's biggest global movie launch ever. 

“The groundbreaking, successful debut of ‘Road House’  is a testament to the hard work and commitment from the entire Road House filmmaking team and the film’s cast led by the phenomenal Jake Gyllenhaal,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. She continued to talk about the cast which also includes Conor McGregor, Daniela Melchior, Darren Barnet and Billy Magnussen: “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.”

‘Road House’ made headlines prior to its debut when director Doug Liman said he would skip the film’s South by Southwest premiere in protest of the film not going to cinemas. He ultimately acquiesced and was on-hand for the bow of the film.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the film as ex-UFC fighter Dalton, who is hired to be the bouncer of a bar in the Florida Keys.
