Jake Gyllenhaal Packs a Punch with Conor McGregor in “Road House” First Trailer

'Road House' debuts on Prime Video March 21

Jake Gyllenhaal is busting heads in his latest film.

The actor, 43, stars in the first trailer for Road House, a "high-octane, adrenaline-filled reimagining" of the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie.

The new film also stars Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, Jessica Williams, Joaquim de Almedia, Lukas Gage, Arturo Castro, B.K. Cannon, Beau Knapp and Darren Barnet, plus MMA fighter Conor McGregor in his first-ever movie role.

Gyllenhaal plays Dalton, an ex-UFC fighter who "takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to discover that this paradise is not all it seems," per a synopsis.

Directed by Douglas Liman, this Road House is a reimagining of the one in which late star Swayze played a hard-hitting bouncer responsible for laying down the law at a rowdy bar. That film also featured Kelly Lynch and Sam Elliott.
