Watch the first trailer for Jimi Hendrix biopic starring Andre 3000

The official trailer for the long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side is finally here. The film tells the story of the legendary musician during the period when he moved to London and started the The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

The film was written and directed by John Ridley, head of the touted 12 Years of Slavery, and is starring Andre Benjamin, best known as Andre 3000 from Outkast.

The soundtrack will be without Hendrix’s music, because the production was not accepted by his family, and will consist of tracks from Bob Dylan, Beatles, Muddy Waters, among others. The film is expected to debut in the UK in August and September in the USA.
