As previously reported, André 3000 is portraying guitar god Jimi Hendrix in the biopic All Is By My Side. While the film has already premiered at several film festivals, its wide release was recently delayed until September. To hold us over until then, the film’s first official trailer has surfaced online. Watch it below.
All Is By My Side hits theaters on September 26th. Helmed by Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (12 Years A Slave), it covers Hendrix’s life and career from 1966-1967, tracing his rise from backup guitarist at NY’s Cheetah Club, through his tenure in the London music scene, and climaxing with his iconic set at the Monterey Pop Festival.
