Andre 3000 Shreds in Trailer for Jimi Hendrix Biopic
'All Is By My Side' hits theaters September 26
Almost two full years after Andre 3000 first talked to us about his role in the new Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side, the film finally has an official trailer. We’ve already seen a brief clip of Dre interacting with co-star Imogen Poots, and heard details of six-hour guitar practices, but now we can get a wider sense of what he’s bringing to the role.
There’s the requisite shredding sprinkled throughout the trailer, but director John Ridley (who won an Oscar last year for 12 Years a Slave) mostly uses the clip as a means of playing up the film’s philosophical discourse. Watch the trailer above and catch Jimi: All Is By My Side in theaters on September 26.
