T.I. Hosts ‘KEANU’ Screening in ATL & Plot Recap [Pics]
Last night, Atlanta’s own “King of the South” T.I. hosted a special VIP screening of the new film KEANU at Regal Cinemas Atlantic Station. Hundreds packed the theater for a chance to preview the highly-anticipated comedy. Cast members Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man and Jason Mitchell were on hand to thank the crowd for their support. Special guests included Keri Hilson, Kelly Price, Egypt Sherrod (HGTV),Robert Riley (VH1 “Hit the Floor”), Clifton Powell, Demetria McKinney, Headkrack (Dish Nation/“Rickey Smiley Morning Show”), DJ Fadelf, D’iallo Thompson (Barbershop: The Next Cut), Beautii J (“Cutting It: In the ATL”), Jasmine Burke (Bounce TV’s “Saints & Sinners”) and more.
Following the screening, T.I. invited guests and the cast to an after-party at his restaurant Scales 925.
Now for the movie. I am usually not a fan of overly silly shows or movies. And to be honest, I didn’t even know who Key and Peele (Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key) were. But I am the kinda person that will give anything a try because I am a movie lover, and lets not forget that I will do my best to support black projects as much as possible.
So, if you don’t know or haven’t heard- the movie is about a recently dumped slacker Rell (Jordan Peele) who happens to 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.
I can’t give you an official review, but it was pretty funny. Very silly and over the top, but I found myself laughing quite a few times at the antics these two went through to rescue a cat!
KEANU is in theaters April 29.
