If you’ve taken a look at our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2016, you know that our cinematic interests are pretty varied. So when we say that we’re stoked to see what Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have put together for the big league outing with “Keanu,” that feeling is genuine. And the first red band trailer has landed.
The duo lead the picture as a pair of not so street-smart cousins who have to track down the titular cat, Keanu, after it’s kidnapped. Seriously, that’s the entire premise and that’s just fine by us. Here’s the official synopsis:
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, a.k.a. the hugely popular comedy duo Key & Peele, star as Clarence and Rell, two cousins who live in the city but are far from streetwise. When Rell’s beloved kitten, Keanu, is catnapped, the hopelessly straight-laced pair must impersonate ruthless killers in order to infiltrate a street gang and retrieve the purloined feline. But the incredibly adorable kitten becomes so coveted that the fight over his custody creates a gang war, forcing our two unwitting heroes to take the law into their own hands.
Co-starring Tiffany Haddish, Method Man, Jason Mitchell, Luis Guzman, Nia Long and Will Forte, “Keanu” opens on April 22nd. Check out the red band and green band trailers below.
