THE FOUNDER Clips, Featurettes, Images and Posters


The biopic "The Founder" tells the story of Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), the ruthless businessman who transformed McDonald's from a small fast food diner owned by two brothers into the worldwide franchise we know today. Although that might sound like your average "success story", the film carries a much darker tone due to Kroc's aggressive tactics and willingness to step on anyone to get where he needs to get. It's also Keaton's career-best performance, as many critics noted, but unfortunately his work went by unnoticed this awards season.

Directed by John Lee Hancock ("The Blind Side"), the film also stars Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch, Linda Cardellini, Laura Dern, Patrick Wilson and B.J. Novak.

The film opened in theaters on January 20th, 2017, but ended with a poor box-office performance, grossing only $3.4 million in its nationwide release.

Check out the clips, featurettes, images and posters after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"Directed by John Lee Hancock (SAVING MR. BANKS), 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."
