Must Watch: First Red Band Trailer for Key & Peele's Comedy 'Keanu'
"Keanu needs you!!" Key & Peele are back! Warner Bros has debuted an awesome new red band trailer for Peter Atencio's Keanu, starring Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key as two "blerds" (aka black nerds) who must work their way into a drug cartel in order to rescue an adorable kitten named Keanu. Yea, that's pretty much all you need to know going in, because the rest of this is just that concept playing out and it's hilarious. I've been curious about this since we first heard about it, and it looks like it's one of the first must see comedies of 2016. Also starring Luis Guzmán, Will Forte, Nia Long, Rob Huebel and Method Man.
Here's the first adorable red band trailer for Peter Atencio's Keanu, direct from YouTube:
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 29th, 2016 in the spring.
