This might be the slowest car chase we've ever seen. Keanu Reeves appeared in a pre-taped skit for "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday, where Reeves and Jimmy spoofed the actor's famous flick "Speed" for a new, anticlimatic car chase movie. Check out the video above to see the duo's trailer for "A Reasonable Speed." In the clip, the 47-year-old is ambushed by a tattoo-covered Kimmel, who steals his suitcase before escaping to a sports car. Reeves follows the comedian, and gets in his own car to cautiously chase the late night host down. "The only rules, are the rules of the road," a voiceover says in the faux-trailer. "The first movie ever produced by the California Highway Patrol."During the car chase, both stars abide by California safety laws ... stopping at lights and maintaining reasonable speeds. Keanu played cop Jack Traven in 1994's "Speed," where he took control of a »

Keanu Reeves has touched once or twice in the past on why he elected not to star in 1997's ill-fated Speed 2: Cruise Control. The movie, which saw director Jan De Bont and co-star Sandra Bullock move the series forward, was a notable dud. And whilst there's occasional talk of Speed 3, nothing ever happened. Speed 2: Cruise Control was a bona fide franchise killer.
Reeves' new film, Knock Knock, is finally getting a Us release. Eli Roth directed the movie, which appeared in the UK earlier this year. As part of his promotional work for the movie, Reeves appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the Us, and talked about the Speed sequel.
"I didn’t get to be in that", he recalled, adding "well, I decided not to be in that".
"I loved working »
A Reasonable Speed isn't quite as nerve-shredding as the original blockbuster, but it does have much more basic traffic instruction!
Set to the tune of 'Slow Ride', Reeves obeys stop signs, keeps both hands on the wheel and watches out for bystanders while chasing down a thief (Jimmy Kimmel).
When he's not obeying the laws of the road, Reeves is preparing to reprise his role as the stoic assassin in John Wick which begins filming this autumn.
Check out more of these parodies on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, airing weeknights on ABC in the Us. »
Keanu Reeves stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week for quite the throwback. The actor joined host of the talk show to partake in a mock trailer for an upcoming film seemingly inspired by Reeves. Speed films along with the Fast & Furious franchise. The faux film, entitled A Reasonable Speed moves just a bit slower than the car chasing film franchises though, and by slower we mean actually following speed limits and traffic signals. Check it out: After a deal goes south, Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Kimmel find themselves engaged in a seriously intense car chase. With high stakes, the two really pump into gear, but instead of hitting pedal to the medal, just a light tap, and keeping track of the traffic and area surroundings. The first ever film produced by the California Highway patrol offers up a rule-following car chase that the Consumer Safety Council says "will leave »

Check it out below. »

Keanu Reeves jumped behind the steering wheel of a flashy sports car and put the the pedal not completely to the metal in the thrillingly safe trailer for the faux film, A Reasonable Speed, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday.
Recalling Reeves' beloved Speed films crossed with the Fast and Furious franchise — but produced by the California Highway Patrol — the clip finds the action star and late-night host engaged in a high-stakes, low-velocity chase after a deal goes south. While props should go to Jimmy Kimmel for his asymmetrical haircut and neck tattoo, »
If you've ever seen Speed, then finding out Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Kimmel made a parody is incredibly exciting. As you may be able to guess from the title, "A Reasonable Speed," things are a little different this time. Kimmel and Reeves play nemeses, but instead of having to drive above 50 Mph, they stick to the speed limit and have a very safe car chase. It's totally worth watching just to see Kimmel's ridiculous "bad guy" styling. (Think asymmetrical hair.) Take a look, and if you haven't seen it already, you need to watch the trailer for Reeves's actual new movie, Knock Knock. »

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Kimmel released the first trailer for their slow-paced thrill ride, “A Reasonable Speed.” The “Knock Knock” star and the late-night host play two men engaged in some kind of illicit, back-alley deal in the parody that aired on ABC on Wednesday. When Reeves presents Kimmel with a suitcase full of money, Kimmel bolts for his nearby sports car. Reeves gives chase, but both are sure to follow the rules of the road. Even criminals have to be responsible drivers after all. See video: Keanu Reeves Gets Tied Up by Gorgeous Psychos in Eli Roth's New »

Like any actor who has been in the business for decades, Keanu Reeves has made some lemons, but one he thankfully avoided was Speed 2: Cruise Control — the follow-up to Speed that took place on a cruise ship, instead of a bus. Reeves was replaced in the sequel by Jason Patric, while Sandra Bullock carried on as a character unfortunate enough to find herself in the same situation again. Reeves went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and explained why he passed: "It was just a situation in life where I got the script and I read the script and I was like, Ahhh!" Makes sense.And then they reimagine a fast car chase as "A Reasonable Speed" — or when the Fast and the Furious becomes the Slow and the Regulated. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Keanu Reeves is a seriously funny dude. Hollywood needs to do more with this. Keanu and Jimmy Kimmel shot a trailer for their own slow and safe-moving movie, "A Reasonable Speed" -- "the first movie ever produced by the California Highway Patrol" -- with Jimmy and his fabulous fake hair driving carefully ahead of Keanu in a "low speed chase." It's fantastic, especially when Keanu shouts, "Slow down!" to a passing skateboarder and panics over approaching a speed bump. Clearly we would go see this movie, Hollywood, so make it.

Way back in December, action icon Dwayne Johnson came aboard to provide the voice of a demigod named Maui in Disney's new animated adventure Moana, which has been given a November 23, 2016 release date. The story follows the title character, a young girl who teams up with Maui on her journey through the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, to find a lost and fabled island. Today, People has our first look at the title character, who will be voiced by 14-year-old Hawaii native Auli'i Cravalho. Here's what the actress had to say about getting the chance to play the new Disney princess, Moana.
"From baby time to now, I wanted to be a Disney princess and then I wanted to be a singer or an actress. Moana is such an amazing character. She's brave, she is so empowered, she knows what she wants and she's not afraid to get it, »
Having first graced the big screen as mop-headed slacker Ted Theodore Logan in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves has since become one of Hollywood’s ‘go to’ actors when explosive action is the order of the day, starring in numerous edge-of-your-seat thrillers including Point Break, Speed and The Matrix. His most recent film, John Wick, which sees Reeves play a former hitman hell-bent on revenge as he returns to the criminal world he left behind in out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
With a career spanning over three decades, Reeves is rarely far from his next on-screen adventure, but what about some of those action heroes we haven’t heard from in a while? We decided to track down a few of our favourites.

Director Jan de Bont (Speed) is letting his yard go brown before replanting with climate-appropriate landscaping; Anne Archer replaced her Brentwood lawn with

The UK has seen a pretty awesome summer in 2013 compared to recent years.

And autumn has arrived today!
Sun is still around, a cool breeze is in the year, trees and falling leaves look like a beautiful painting, and we can start wearing cosy jumpers. So for those who love this time of year, DS has compiled a list of 12 great autumnal movies for the 12 equinox hours to get you in the mood.
While the time-travel elements may be confusing and make little sense, this underrated gem reunites Speed's Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in a film that really showcases the beauty of autumn throughout.

Given the title of the film, you could be fooled into thinking that Scott Mann’s upcoming actioner Heist was a full remake of David Mamet’s 2001 film of the same name – alas, the reality is somewhat more disappointing.
Yahoo Movies has debuted the maiden trailer for Mann’s thriller. Starring Robert De Niro, Jeffery Dean Morgan and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Dave Bautista, Heist orbits around the attempts of two men desperate to rob De Niro’s crime boss, The Pope. Channeling the fast-editing and style of Ocean’s Eleven in the beginning, the trailer then switches abruptly to high-speed pursuit, with Mann’s actioner – originally titled Bus 657 – switching gears into all-out hostage thriller.
It’s a tense situation that plays out similarly to Keanu Reeves’ Speed only with less flair and even less Keanu Reeves, and the general feeling of been there, done that doesn’t have us too optimistic. »

Bruno Barde, the man behind five festivals including the Deauville American Film Fest, sat down with Variety on the eve of the 41st edition, which opens today with an homage to Keanu Reeves and the French premiere of Baltasar Kormakur’s epic adventure drama “Everest.”
A former high-profile agent and the current boss of Paris-based Public System Cinema, Barde took over the artistic direction of Deauville 20 years ago and has strived to select movies and documentaries that reflect the breath and diversity of contemporary U.S. cinema, as well as its society.
This year, the main theme of the festival is heroism. “American cinema abounds with cult heroic figures; not only in studio movies with superheroes but also in independent films with real people who by virtue become heroes,” said Barde. Many actors who will be honored in Deauville have interpreted these heroes: Reeves with “Matrix” and “Speed”; Orlando Bloom »
