Here’s the trailer for André 3000’s new Jimi Hendrix biopic

Here’s an appropriate teaser for Fourth of July weekend: the trailer for the long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic, starring Outkast’s André Benjamin, a.k.a. André 3000.

All Is by My Side, which was written and directed by 12 Years a Slave screenwriter John Ridley, debuts Sept. 26, and tells the story of the legendary musician’s time in London, from 1966 to 1967. During that time, he recorded his debut album, Are You Experienced, and played an incendiary set at the Monterey Pop Festival. Benjamin reportedly even learned to play the guitar left-handed, like Hendrix.

And to celebrate Fourth of July, let’s all watch this again:
