Catty New ‘Keanu’ Posters Parody Oscar Nominees

In anticipation for the Oscars this weekend, Warner Bros. has released a new batch of “Keanu” posters, parodying a handful of the Best Picture nominees with the film’s titular feline front-and-centre.

Check out the new posters for the Jordan Peele/Keegan Michael Key film — taking on Warner Bros. Best Picture nominees “The Big Short,” “The Revenant,” “The Martian” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” — below:

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.

Directed by Peter Atencio (“The Last Man on Earth”) and written by Peele and Alex Rubens (“Community”), “Keanu” hits screens on April 29.
