WATCH: Michael Keaton is "The Founder" of McDonalds

The biopic shows how the massive food franchise took off

Michael Keaton continues his career revival with The Founder, which is already getting talked up for next year's Oscars.

Keaton plays Ray Kroc, the man who founded McDonalds... except he didn't.

The idea was stolen by a pair of brothers (played by Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch), with Kroc using his mix of charm and conniving menace to get what he wants.

Anyone who sees how he got McDonalds to work in his favour, and equates it to a metaphor on the American Dream - top points!

From the director of The Blind Side and Saving Mr Banks, and the writer of The Wrestler, this has some serious awards potential going on behind it.

It's released in the USA on August 5th, with no set date for Irish cinemas just yet.
