Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and All Def Digital hosted a special “All Def Comedy” screening of KEANU at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last week. Hundreds packed the theater for a chance to preview the hilarious film which stars Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man, Nia Long, Jason Mitchell and Tiffany Haddish (“The Carmichael Show”) who was in attendance.
Special guests included rapper The Game; Michael Jai White (“For Better or Worse”); Gillian White; Joseline Hernandez (“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”); Sundy Carter (“Basketball Wives”); Hazel-E (“Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood”); Miles Brock (“Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood”); Lil Rel Howery (“The Carmichael Show”); comedian Joe Torry; writer/comedian Chris Spencer; social media stars King Keraun, Simone Shepherd and Dulo; Marcano Parnell (“Greenleaf”); Marcus T. Paulk (“Moesha”); E.B Wright (daughter of Eazy-E); actor/comedian Buddy Lewis and more.
About the movie: 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.
Peele plays Rell, an introverted stoner artist, whose precious cat, Keanu, has become his favorite model, and Key is his chipper, all-too-eager-to-please cousin, Clarence. The film also stars Method Man (“The Fast and the Furious,” “Red Tails”) as the menacing gang leader, Cheddar; Tiffany Haddish (“Real Husbands of Hollywood”) as the stone-cold gangster, Hi-C; with Luis Guzman (“We’re the Millers,” “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) as Bacon, a Mexican cartel kingpin; Nia Long (“The Best Man Holiday”) as Clarence’s beautiful wife, Hannah; and Will Forte (“The Last Man on Earth,” “Nebraska”) as the eccentric scumbag drug dealer, Hulka.
