Hayley Atwell and Imogen Poots co-star in the biopic about the rock star's early career, hitting theaters Sept. 26.

Andre Benjamin plays rock legend Jimi Hendrix in the first trailer for the forthcoming biopic Jimi: All Is by My Side.

Benjamin, a.k.a. Outkast's Andre 3000, dons colorful attire to play Hendrix in the film, which focuses on the musician's prefame London days. In the trailer, Hendrix tussles with cops and gets handsy with some foxy ladies. Hayley Atwell and Imogen Poots co-star.




The film was written and directed by John Ridley, who won an Oscar for writing 12 Years a Slave. He makes his directorial debut here. Benjamin's last film role was in the 2008 comedy Semi-Pro.

Open Road releases the film Sept. 26.
