Conor McGregor, the renowned UFC legend, has achieved a groundbreaking milestone with his Hollywood debut, "Road House," raking in an impressive $750 million at the box office within just two weeks of its release. McGregor, who stars as 'Knox' alongside movie star Jake Gyllenhaal, marks his entry into the film industry in spectacular fashion.

The remake of "Road House," which pairs McGregor's character with Gyllenhaal's ex-UFC fighter role of Dalton, has captivated audiences worldwide, amassing an astounding 50 million viewers in its first two weekends of release. This remarkable feat establishes the movie as Amazon Prime Video's biggest opening in history, showcasing the immense popularity and appeal of McGregor's transition to the silver screen.

Taking to Twitter to express his excitement and gratitude, McGregor congratulated Amazon Studios and MGM Studios for the monumental success of "Road House," hailing it as their most-watched movie of all time. His tweet lauded the collaborative efforts of the entire team, emphasizing the extraordinary achievement of generating $750 million at the box office in just 10 days.

McGregor's foray into acting has not only shattered box office records but also cemented his status as the highest-paid debutant actor in history, reportedly earning over £4 million for his role in "Road House." This surpasses the previous record held by WWE star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson for his debut in 2001's "The Mummy Returns."
