The Weinstein Company released the latest trailer for its biopic of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, The Founder, this week.
The Founder tells the true story of Ray Kroc, a salesman in 1950s Illinois who discovered a burger joint in Southern California that could fill an order for a hamburger in less than a minute. Sensing endless franchise opportunity, Kroc takes over the business from brothers Mac and Dick McDonald, and the country’s biggest fast-food empire is born.
John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, Saving Mr. Banks) directs off of a script from Robert D. Siegel (The Wrestler). Nick Offerman, John Lee Carroll, Linda Cardellini, B.J. Novak, Laura Dern and Patrick Wilson co-star.
The Founder is in theaters January 20.
