Watch Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in ‘All Is By My Side’ Trailer
Pragmatic fans know better than to hold their breath for a new OutKast album, but one thing we can look forward to is Andre 3000‘s lead role as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic, ‘Jimi: All Is By My Side.’
If you watched the brief snippet from the movie that surfaced earlier this year, you’ll know 3 Stacks absolutely nails his portrayal of the legendary rockstar — from his eccentric style right down to his quaint, wavering voice. But just in case you need anymore convincing, the official movie trailer is finally here.
Directed by John Ridley (Oscar-winning screenwriter for ’12 Years a Slave’), ‘All Is By My Side’ chronicles Hendrix’s rise to fame in London during 1966-67, with Benjamin delivering stunning reenactments of his storied performances and insightful television interviews.
The movie also takes an intimate look at the late guitarist’s personal life, with Hayley Atwell playing the apple of his eye, Kathy Etchingham, and Imogen Poots starring as Linda Keith, Keith Richards’ ex-girlfriend who was instrumental in the launch of Hendrix’s career.
‘Jimi: All Is By My Side’ hits theaters on Sept. 26. Watch the trailer above.
