One of the most recognisable logos in the world (or at the very least, in the western world) is the McDonald’s Golden Arches. These shining parabolas are practically synonymous with obesity, and are often one of the first under fire when people complain about our sedentary lifestyles, whether they are to blame or not.
What is less known, however, is the chain’s origins, and how one man dragged the small restaurant into the corporate giant it is nowadays. That is the story being told in The Founder.
Starring Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch, the trailer for The Founder appears to be telling a mildly tragi-comic rendition of how the Keaton’s shady businessman managed to manoeuvre himself into leading the franchise instead of its founders.
The trailer displays a wealth of talent, as well as showing how the iconic logo came to be.
The Founder certainly looks to be an interesting film that tells a brutal tale of backstabbing and greed.
The Founder is out in cinemas January 20th!
