The marketing for Keanu, the upcoming action-comedy from Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, has taken a turn for the Oscars.
Amusing new posters have been released, taking well-known posters from some of this year’s Oscar-nominated films and giving them a feline twist. The comedy’s titular kitten is placed within the adorable promo images, which retitles the films and switches up some taglines. Our fave: Keanu: Furry Road, the future belongs to the cat.
Keanu tells the story of two friends who hatch a plot to retrieve a stolen cat by posing as drug dealers for a street gang. You can watch the trailer right HERE.
Synopsis for Keanu:
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.
