Watch Michael Keaton steal the McDonalds empire in this trailer for THE FOUNDER

1 min read

Way back in high school, I did my time, flipping burgers and pouring shakes at McDonalds. I don’t regret the time at all as it taught me a few things: How to survive on minimum wage, how to just smile and nod in the face of ridiculous customers, and also that McDonald’s fast food empire actually only exists today because of a motivated (read: obsessive) and business savvy (read: sneaky and slimy) man by the name of Ray Kroc. The Founder is his story.

Michael Keaton, continuing his massively impressive return to Hollywood A-list status, stars as Kroc and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he may just need to start making some more room on his movie awards shelf.

Check it out below.

Damn, that looks good. I guess, you could say that pah-rah-pah-paaaah… I’m loving it! (sorry, not sorry)

The Founder is directed John Lee Hancock (The Blindside) and was written by Robert Siegel (The Wrestler). It also stars John Carrol Lynch, Nick Offerman, Laura Dern, Patrick Wilson, BJ Novak and Linda Cardellini. It is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
