Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele‘s new action-comedy KEANU has debuted four new posters spoofing recent Oscar winning movies The Martian, The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Big Short.

Peter Atencio (“Key & Peele,” “The Last Man on Earth”) directed the film from a script written by Jordan Peele and Alex Rubens (“Key & Peele,” “Community”). Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Peter Principato, Paul Young, and Joel Zadak are the producers, with Ben Ormand serving as executive producer.

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; and Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”) as the hardened young banger, Bud; 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.

The duo play Clarence and Rell, 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.

“Keanu” is slated for release on April 29, 2016. From New Line Cinema, “Keanu” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
