‘Keanu’ Cat Trailer: Key and Peele Edit Preview To Only Include Kitties — Watch

'Keanu' Cat Trailer: Key and Peele Edit Preview To Only Include Kitties -- Watch


If you think the “Keanu” trailer couldn’t get any cuter, you were wrong. Warner Bros. released a new sneak peak of the film, only this time it features only the most adorable cats.

With a tagline of “The Time is Meow,” the “Kitten, Please” spoof has all the lines of the previously released videos only acted out by all sort of kitties. The parody shows how Keanu, a stuffed toy cat in this version, comes into the lives of the real kittens and how he is stolen from them. 

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and many films have previously been redone with cats, but this one just tops the list given the plot. It’s too funny for words, just watch the trailer above.

The cat-gangster film stars Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key as two cousins who infiltrate a street gang to get back their kidnapped kitty. The comedy is directed by Peter Atencio, who also helmed episodes of Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele.” Alex Rubens serves as screenwriter. 

“Keanu” jumps into theaters on April 29.
