Fans of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele will be excited to see the trailer for Keanu, a new movie featuring the two stars of the sketch comedy show, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
The movie follows the duo trying to save a kitten after it gets taken, but instead of simply locating the animal and bringing it home, they find themselves in the middle of a gang war pretending to be people they’re not. It also stars Tiffany Haddish (The Carmichael Show, If Loving You Is Wrong), Method Man (How High, The Wire), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Kong: Skull Island), Nia Long (Third Watch, House of Lies), Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights, How to Make It in America), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth, Nebraska), Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital, Transparent), and the movie is directed by Peter Atencio (Key & Peele).

The Official Redband Trailer for Keanu directed by Peter Atencio and starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Tiffany Haddish, Method Man, Jason Mitchell, with Luis Guzman, Nia Long and Will Forte.
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.
Keanu is scheduled to be released on April 29th.
Keep in mind before clicking that play button that this is a red band trailer so of course a NSFW warning is in effect!
