Keanu (2016, D: Atencio) S: Key & Peele



<iframe width="605" height="340" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/BiDbqWMe7OI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Devastated after being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, Jordan Peele’s character gets over the loss after he adopts an absolutely adorable stray kitten he names “Keanu”. Naturally, he and his best friend Clarence (Keegan Michael Key) fall deeply in love with the little guy, and their lives are turned upside down when Peele’s apartment is broken into and Keanu is stolen by a feared gangster. The two hatch a plan to pretend to be dangerous drug dealers in order to rescue their furry friend: bullets, bloodshed and a lot of George Michael songs ensue.

Key and Peele star, along with Method Man, Gabrielle Union, Will Forte, Darrell Britt-Gibson, and Nia Long. Peter Atencio directs from a script written by Peele and Alex Rubens, and it’s produced by Key, Peele, Peter Principato, Paul Young, and Joel Zadak. It meows into theaters April 29.

I love Key and Peele so I'll check this out but I'm not sure how they'll do with a feature length movie.

Cute cat though.

I never got that in to all the Key and Peele sketches that kept making the rounds, but their humor is mildly amusing to me. This looks fun.

Something about a cat in a Doo Rag sells it for me.

I like the duo so... I'm game for this.

I like them, they're not always funny but they definitely have a bunch of great bits.

For the fact that the entire creative staff of K&P is on board (including the show's primary director who made the show feel cinematic), this gives me the confidence that this might be something special.

That is as long as studio interference doesn't happen.

Alright, I laughed pretty hard when Key started speaking in ebonics.

K&P could do football players names for 2 hours straight and I'd watch it.

Glancing at the thread title, thought someone made a movie about the actor

Im surprised no one has mentioned this. I assume the movie and cat's name is a nod to John Wick.

Oddly enough, I turned to my wife when I saw this trailer and said the same exact thing. Alternatively, it could be horrible.

I thought this was a talking cat movie until I saw the trailer.

Might have to check it out now.

Saw the trailer today before London has Fallen

Looks hilarious. I may actually see this one in theaters. Rarely see comedies in theaters, but I loved how over the top this looks.

This might actually be good. I can't believe I just said that about a comedy.

Release week bump. Not a ton of reviews out yet, but 75% on RT so far. I will see this one way or another...maybe catch a showing this weekend, or watch it months later online.

i think i might check this out, I have never seen anything from Key & Peele, and love the absurd idea of it. Plus it helps being a cat guy.
