Trailer For Jimi Hendrix Biopic Released

A trailer for the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, featuring Andre 3000 in the lead role, has been unveiled. The film chronicles Hendrix's early career struggles during the period from 1966-1967.

"You've never been nothin' to them but a curiosity," Hendrix is told in one clip from the trailer.

The film follows Jimi as he makes his mark in the New York and London club scenes, up to his landmark performance at the Monterey Pop Festival.

"Watch out for your ears!" Hendrix yells to an audience in another clip. "I want my music to go inside the soul of a person."

Jimi: All Is by My Side, directed by John Ridley, hits theaters September 26. The film was shown at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this year to generally positive reviews.
