We’re already looking at the Oscar season with an anticipatory eye and one of the questions we yearning to have answered is will Michael Keaton get his makeup Oscar for “The Founder” from John Lee Hancock? In the hands of Harvey Weinstein, he’ll surely be in the hunt but will it live up to the hype?
In theaters everywhere August 5th, check out the new trailer below:
Written by Robert Siegel (BIG FAN), THE FOUNDER is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a 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. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
