TRAILER: "Jimi: All is By My Side"

This Jimi Hendrix biopic, written and directed by John Ridley (who just won the Oscar for writing 12 Years a Slave), focuses on his early days in London in 1966 and '67, before he made it big in America. It also has a pretty big problem in that it wasn't able to actually use any of Jimi Hendrix's music, but it looks like they tried to get by as best they could with a similar sound. It's hard to imagine how that would work in the movie though. Andre Benjamin plays Hendrix (Andre 3000 from Outkast) and he actually looks pretty good here. The film's coming out September 26th.
