The original ‘Road House’ film, penned by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry and produced by Joel Silver, features an ensemble cast including Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, Jessica Williams, Joaquim de Almeida, Conor McGregor and Lukas Gage. Premiering on Prime Video on 21st March, it set a new record for Amazon MGM Studios, with over 50 million viewers in its first two weekends, making it the studio’s most-watched film debut ever worldwide.

It’s worth noting that streaming viewership numbers, often self-reported by platforms, come with certain limitations. Amazon did not specify what constitutes a “view” or how much of ‘Road House’ was watched for viewers to be counted. The reported figures also span the first 10 days of availability rather than the traditional opening weekend.
