Keanu First Look

Aw, what a cute little cat, I hope he makes it out okay. With 2016 just around the corner, Entertainment Weekly has debuted their annual first look preview, featuring a gallery of photos from many of the highly anticipated movies coming up next year. One film I'm suddenly very excited about is titled simply Keanu. While it sounds like it could be a reference to the badass actor Keanu Reeves (I still hope it somehow is), it's actually a story about two "blerds" (black nerds) who have to infiltrate a drug cartel to rescue a stolen cat named Keanu. Comics/actors Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key star in the film, which was also written by and directed by "Key & Peele" veterans making the leap into features. See the first photo below.

Full description from EW.com: "Starring Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key — the Comedy Central sketch sensations behind the recently ended Key & Peele — the film follows two 'blerds' (read: black nerds) who impersonate gangstas and infiltrate a drug cartel to rescue a stolen cat (named Keanu). 'This entire movie was basically the most expensive adorable-kitten video of all time,' jokes Peele, who wrote Keanu with Key & Peele alum Alex Rubens. 'Overall it’s meant to satirize how pop culture paints masculinity and what it means to be African-American — and how many of us don’t fit into the mold expected of us.'" Sounds good to me. Directed by Peter Atencio, Keanu arrives in theaters starting April 22nd, 2016 in the spring.
