The first poster for the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, All Is By My Side has been released. The image is reminiscent of the iconic Blaxploitation film posters of the 1970’s and features André Benjamin as Hendrix along with his female co-stars Hayley Atwell and Imogen Poots.
As previously reported, All Is By My Side stars the OutKast rapper as rock legend in this revealing biopic from Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (12 Years A Slave). Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.
