Video: Trailer for Jimi Hendrix Biopic, “All Is by My Side”

As a big fan of Jimi Hendrix, this Andre 3000-starring biopic caught my attention as soon as it was announced. Now the first trailer has arrived… and it looks pretty damn cool.

The official word on the movie reads:

OutKast’s Andre Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in this revealing biopic from Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (12 Years a Slave). Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.

As well as Benjamin, the film also stars Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Andrew Buckley, and Ruth Negga.

All is by My Side is set for a 26th September release.

  1. Not sure about Andre’s acting skills, can he give a performance that would justify the legend that is Hendrix??? Big shoes!
