This movie is also on my list of most anticipated movies of 2016 which you can see here. Michael Keaton has had quite a career resurgence lately. First with Birdman and then with Spotlight. This one appears to be another step in that direction which will hopefully lead to some more recognition in the future. Here he plays the founder of McDonald’s, Ray Kroc. The trailer shows that this did not start that way which meant that he had to work hard, to say the least, to get there. The reason why I’m particularly excited for this is that this a story that I’ve never heard of before and I couldn’t think of anyone to be in the middle of this other than Keaton. This film should not only appeal to McDonald’s fans but Keaton fans as well. He just looks amazing here and will surely not disappoint. The Founder releases August 5th, 2016.
