XLrator Media has set a September 26, 2014 theatrical release date for John Ridley’s Jimi Hendrix film, now titled, “Jimi: All Is By My Side,” which made its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall.
Andre Benjamin plays Hendrix in the drama, and is joined by Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Andrew Buckley, in a film that covers a year in Hendrix’s life, from 1966-67, presenting an intimate portrait of the sensitive, young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend, cutting his teeth as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club, to making his mark on London’s music scene, up until his Monterey Pop triumph.
To further entice you, after the release of the film’s first trailer a week ago, here’s a just as psychedelic first poster, embedded below.
