The stars of the new comedy “Keanu” hosted a special advanced screening of the film Tuesday night at Atlanta’s Regal Theatre Atlantic Station. Keegan Michael-Key, Jordan Peele, Jason Mitchell, and Method Man were all smiles as they made their way into the theater with hundreds of adoring fans. The evening was hosted by Grammy winning-rappper and actor Tip “T.I.” Harris.
In “Keanu,” a recently dumped slacker Rell (Jordan Peele) finds some happiness when a cute kitten winds up on his doorstep. After a heartless thief steals the cat, Rell recruits his cousin Clarence (Keegan Michael-Key) to help him retrieve it. They soon learn that a thug named Cheddar (Method Man) has the animal, and he’ll only give it back if the two men agree to work for him. Armed with guns and a gangster attitude, it doesn’t take long for the hapless duo to land in big trouble. “Keanu” also stars Nia Long, Luis Guzmán, Jason Mitchell, Tiffany Haddish, and more.
Celebrities in attendance included Keri Hilson, Demetria McKinney, Beautii J, Jasmine Burke, Clifton Powell, Kelly Price, Lil Zane, A.I. (Rock City), Egypt Sherrod, Rob Riley, Sincere Gubano (Ghetto and Blues), Sara Lowe, Robin Dyke and a host of others. Following the film was a private afterparty at T.I.’s Scales 925 Restaurant.
