Take the comedic talents of Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, add an intensely adorable kitten, the musical stylings of George Michael, and a riff on John Wick, and you get Keanu — an action comedy that is mostly enjoyable, until it stretches its premise a little too thin and falls victim to the narrative demands of a feature-length film. Perhaps fittingly enough, Key and Peele’s first film outing is at its most lively when the titular kitten is on screen. Remove the kitten from the equation and you have a film that adheres a little too closely to the action flick formula it seeks to emulate, particularly during the lengthy third act.

Believe me when I tell you that the absolute best thing about Keanu is the titular kitten, who doesn’t just steal each scene he’s in — he totally hijacks them. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough Keanu in Keanu, but this new spoof trailer for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s upcoming comedy rectifies that situation, giving us a version of the film that stars nothing but cats.

One of our most anticipated films of the year is Keanu, the kidnapped kitten comedy from the brilliant minds of Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key. And one of the most anticipated events of the year (for serious film fans) is the annual Academy Awards, which airs tomorrow night. What happens when you combine the adorable kitten from Keanu with some of this year’s nominees? It’s pretty darn cute.

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.

It’s been some time since Tracy Morgan first started putting together an FX comedy, a development process tragically marred by his infamous accident, though FX heads insisted they’d wait for the beloved SNL star. Now, Morgan has finally set a new FX comedy to producer and star in, joined by Key & Peele alum Jordan Peele.

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have been keeping very busy since ending their Comedy Central series. The pair are developing a Police Academy reboot, bringing their popular substitute teacher character to the big screen, and working on a comedy film called Keanu (not Reeves). But the most interesting (and imminent) project is Peele’s Get Out, a new horror film rooted in social issues which has added Sicario star Daniel Kaluuya to the cast.

Sadly, we have been reluctantly ushered into a post-Key & Peele world by the riotous Comedy Central sketch show’s conclusion back in September. But the show went out on the best possible terms that any show can possibly hope to end. Instead of grinding on and on until quality and viewership declined, compelling the network to pull the plug, both Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key agreed that the show had run its course and that they were interested in pursuing new projects. So, yes, while we may be living in a post-Key & Peele world, we’re far from living in a post-Key and Peele world.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been rising through the comedy ranks since long before Key & Peele, though there’s no denying how visibly the Comedy Central sketch series boosted their profile. Still, all birds must eventually leave the nest, and so we’ve learned that the fifth and current Key & Peele season will be their last.
