Michael Keaton Plans A New American Church In The Founder Trailer

The uniquely American tale of Ray Kroc, the man who took McDonalds from a San Bernadino burger stand to a nationwide franchise juggernaut is finally getting a film from The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock.

Michael Keaton plays Kroc, a struggling traveling salesman who meets the McDonalds brothers and aims to make their revolutionary method for serving up quick burgers into “a new American church.” And as the trailer (via USA Today) shows, Kroc’s journey was filled with shouting and contract negotiations.

The Founder opens on August 5th.
