Must See, Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in “All is by My Side”
One of the films premiering at SXSW this year is the biopic on famed-musician Jimi Hendrix called “All is By My Side”. The studio released a new trailer for the film, which you can see below, showing Andre 3000 in the leading role of Jimi Hendrix.
This is the first clip from the film that has been released by the studio to-date, showing Hendrix with attached love-interest Linda Keith (played by Imogen Poots) for the first time. Fans of Hendrix know Keith as a long-time companion/girlfriend of Hendrix; who not only was a muse to Hendrix but also Richards.
The movie couldn’t have premiered at a better time, written and directed by John Ridley who also wrote “12 Years a Slave.” That film just won several Academy Awards and has been the talk of the industry all week, a feat that will surely help boost ticket-sales for the new project. Open Road won the bid to distribute the biopic but there has not been an official release date set for the film in North America.
