After a quick clip this week, The Weinstein Company has dropped the trailer for The Founder about McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc and starring Oscar-nominee Michael Keaton.
The Founder tells the true story of how Illinois salesman Ray Kroc met brothers Mac and Dick McDonald, operating a hamburger restaurant in southern California in the 1950s. Kroc subtly maneuvers himself into a position to take control of their company, which grows into one of the world’s best-known brands after he buys the chain for $2.7 million in 1961. Directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, Saving Mr. Banks) and written by Robert D. Siegel (The Wrestler), the films also stars Linda Cardellini, Laura Dern, Patrick Wilson, Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch.
