‘Keanu’ Green Band Trailer: Key and Peele’s Kitten Comedy Gets a Little More Cuddly
Okay, the green band trailer for Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key’s Keanu isn’t all that different from the red band version, but are you really going to pretend like you don’t want to watch this trailer again? Key and Peele’s kitten kidnap comedy looks so good that it’s almost unreal — thankfully this movie is very, very real.
As seen in the previous trailer, the duo team up to retrieve a stolen kitten named Keanu (which is seriously the best cat name ever) from a group of thugs. Hijinks ensue as the two straight-laced pals have to act real tough in order to infiltrate the criminal underground. All the funny stuff from the first trailer remains, but since this one is SFW, most of the profanity has been removed — which means you can now show this trailer to your mom and it might play more convincingly.
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 also stars Will Forte, Jason Mitchell, Method Man, Tiffany Haddish, Luis Guzman and Nia Long, and hits theaters on April 29.
