According to ScreenRant, the recent Road House remake, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, was a streaming-exclusive release on Amazon Prime Video. However, there’s speculation about how much the action film could have earned if it had received a theatrical release.

Comparing it to the original 1989 Road House starring Patrick Swayze, which made around $75 million adjusted for inflation, the remake potentially could have grossed around $150 million at the box office. This estimate is further supported by the performance of recent action films like The Beekeeper ($152 million) and The Equalizer 3 ($191 million).

While Jake Gyllenhaal is a well-known actor, his star power has had mixed results at the box office. His recent action films like Ambulance underperformed, but his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man: Far From Home was a significant draw.

The Road House remake offered a more mainstream action premise than Gyllenhaal’s typical critical darlings, potentially giving it wider appeal and a boost at the box office. Had Road House been released theatrically, its budget would have been reduced from $85 million to $60 million. While this could have impacted production quality, it also meant a lower break-even point of around $150 million.

However, finding the right release date would have been crucial. Avoiding competition from major action releases like Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire and positioning it as a counterpoint to Dune: Part Two could have benefited its theatrical run.

Road House is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
