As a show, Key & Peele may be gone, but we certainly haven’t seen the last of masterminds Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Next up on their increasingly busy schedule is the kitten-centric comedy Keanu. The first trailer is here, and holy shit, this looks hilarious.
The story follows two friends who lose a coveted kitten to a street gang and must pose as drug dealers to get their fuzzy friend back. Key and Peele and a kitten, you had me at hello, but this trailer is also sharp and clever. Peele called Keanu a satire of “how pop culture paints masculinity and what it means to be African-American.” That certainly comes through in this trailer, and with their track record of sharp, biting humor, and the cleverness of what we see, this just became my most anticipated comedy of the year.
Keanu opens on April 22. Check out an adorable new poster below.
