Conor McGregor headbutts Jake Gyllenhaal in the first look at his new movie, Road House.

The UFC star is swapping sports for acting, with the film releasing on Amazon Prime on March 21.

In the first trailer, McGregor walks into a bar with several thugs in tow – and Gyllenhaal’s character sits down and watches him.

The Irishman has a deranged smile on his face and proceeds to break some nearby tables with a crowbar.

Gyllenhaal looked at McGregor before standing up to face the 35-year-old.

The UFC star says: “I have a tip for you. Don’t let anyone get close to this.”

And then he proceeds to launch a powerful headbutt, which results in Gyllenhaal’s character flying back.

McGregor shared the trailer on X, saying: “Fighting, acting, there’s nothing this Mac can’t do!

“Here’s the trailer featuring my brother, Jake Gyllenhaal, and me going head-to-head in the wildest action movie ever made – Road House!

“My acting debut is going to leave a mark! Long live Knox!”. Road House opens for business March 21st on @PrimeVideo. #RoadhouseMovie.”

And fans on social media platforms have been quick to react to the footage.

One user said, “One of the best trailers I’ve ever seen. This might be one of the best movies ever, dude.”

“It feels really good!” Another one was said.

A third said: “Give this guy an Oscar!!!”

A fourth praised the film, saying, “Proud of you man. Looking good. Can’t wait to see it.”

And a fifth was positive, saying: “@TheNotoriousMMA Hey buddy can’t wait. The trailer looks crazy. Must have been fun on set.”

The Road House description on IMDb says: “An ex-UFC middleweight fighter works in a rowdy bar in the Florida Keys, where things are not as they seem.”

The film is directed by Douglas Eric Liman, who has directed many successful films over the years.

They include The Bourne Identity, Jumper, Mister and Mars Smith, Edge of Tomorrow and Swingers.
