New The Founder trailer has food, folks and fraud
The Weinstein Company has debuted a new The Founder trailer for the McDonald’s biopic, which stars Michael Keaton (Birdman, Spotlight) and is directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blindside). Check out The Founder trailer below!
Likened to both David Fincher’s The Social Network and Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, The Founder features the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. Writer Robert Siegel (The Wrestler) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Ray Kroc’s first wife Ethel, John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald, and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald.
The film co-stars Patrick Wilson, Linda Cardellini, Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch and B.J. Novak.
The Weinstein Co. will release The Founder in theaters on January 20, 2017.
