So they remade “Road House” with Jake Gyllenhaal as Dalton.  But instead of a professional bouncer, he’s a former UFC fighter who’s down on his luck when he takes the bouncing job.

Speaking of the UFC, pro fighter Conor McGregor plays one of the bad guys.  It’s his first film role.

There’s already some controversy, though.  The director, Doug Liman, is boycotting the film’s premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival.  Why?  Because Amazon has decided to stream it, rather than put it in theaters.

He says, quote, “Amazon will sell more toasters if it has more subscribers; it will have more subscribers if it doesn’t have to compete with movie theaters . . . [they] are using ‘Road House’ to sell plumbing fixtures.”
