The Founder Trailer: You Don’t Sell Millions of Big Macs Without Making a Few Enemies

By

A million Big Macs isn't cool. You know what's cool? Besides making outdated cultural references? A billion Big Macs. Michael Keaton, after swinging hard for that Birdman Oscar (and then missing), is back at it again with The Founder, a biopic of Ray Kroc, the 52-year-old milkshake salesman who turned Mac (John Carroll Lynch) and Dirk McDonald’s (Nick Offerman) teeny burger joint into a greasy burger empire. The Founder is directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, Saving Mr. Banks) and Robert D. Siegel. Think of it as The Social Network, but starring the Justin Timberlake character if Justin Timberlake were a middle-aged dude in the 1950s married to Laura Dern. The Founder premieres August 5.
