Red Band Trailer: Key and Peele Return for ‘Keanu’

Comedy team Key and Peele, whose Comedy Central show came and went too quickly, have reunited for their first feature-film together: Keanu. And no, this has nothing to do with Reeves.

Keanu in this instance is an adorable cat. Here is the (NSFW) trailer:

And here’s the synopsis:

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.

Key and Peele have gotten stronger in their absence from Comedy Central. Their show was aces, but they have each appeared in skits and in small roles on TV and film. This promises to be right in the wheelhouse of their comedic stylings.

Keanu hits theaters April 29.
