The first trailer for Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix film starring Outkast's Andre 3000, has been revealed. Click above to watch now.


Scripted and directed by 12 Years A Slave screenwriter John Ridley, Jimi: All Is By My Side tells the story of Jimi Hendrix's life throughout 1966 and 1967, a period in which he moved to London, formed the Experience and played a career-making set at California's Monterey Pop Festival, which is where the film ends.

The film will not feature any songs recorded or composed by Hendrix himself, as the late guitarist's estate declined permission. Instead, the film will see Andre 3000 perform songs by The Beatles and blues legend Muddy Waters that Hendrix himself covered in the '60s.

The biopic was premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2013. The supporting cast includes Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Burn Gorman and The White Queen's Ashley Charles, who plays a young Keith Richards. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
