Key and Peele’s ‘Keanu’ Trailer Gets an Adorably Perfect Remake With an All-Cat Cast
Believe me when I tell you that the absolute best thing about Keanu is the titular kitten, who doesn’t just steal each scene he’s in — he totally hijacks them. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough Keanu in Keanu, but this new spoof trailer for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s upcoming comedy rectifies that situation, giving us a version of the film that stars nothing but cats.
In a video that is sure to make its way to your mom / aunt / special cat-loving friend’s inbox in a matter of seconds, Keanu gets a perfect all-cat redo — with the eponymous kitty replaced by a teeny-tiny stuffed kitten. And look at the smooshed face of the cat playing Jordan Peele’s character! Has there ever been more perfect cat-casting?
Here’s a bit more about Keanu:
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.
Directed by Peter Atencio, Keanu also stars Method Man, Will Forte and Nia Long, and hits theaters on April 29.
