The Founder gets its first trailer and Michael Keaton shows off


It might be possible that you haven’t heard of Ray Kroc, the man who made McDonald’s what it is today, but you’re about to. The Founder has all the hallmarks of a possible academy award winner, and it’s all about the man who took a tiny hamburger joint and turned it into an empire. The first trailer is interesting and it starts Kroc off as somewhat of a hero and then gets dark.

It’s also another example of the resurgent Michael Keaton getting an incredibly juicy role and looking like he’s going to nail it. I could see another Oscar nomination coming his way if the movie pans out.
