Watch: Key and Peele Feel the Cat Love in ‘Keanu’ Trailer

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are big-time cat lovers in the first red-band trailer for the goofy New Line comedy “Keanu.”

The titular tabby kitten is adopted by Peele’s character, Rell, when he shows up on his doorstep after a devastating breakup, prompting Clarence (Key) to declare, “That’s the cutest cat I’ve ever seen.”

The duo’s happiness is short-lived, though. Keanu is kidnapped by the notorious 17th Street Blips, forcing the pair to pose as drug dealers to pull off a daring rescue.

Method Man, Will Forte, Tiffany Hadish and Jason Mitchell also star.

Key and Peele are producing. Peter Atencio, director of the duo’s Comedy Central series, is helming from a script by Peele and Alex Rubens. Production companies are Principato-Young and CindyLou / Monkey Paw.

“Keanu” opens on April 29.
