The first footage of Outkast star Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the new biopic about the legendary guitarist has been released.

All Is By My Side was partially shot in and around Dublin and Wicklow and also stars Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, former Love/Hate star Ruth Negga and Adrian Lester.

It was produced by Irish producer Tristan Orpen Lynch and directed by John Ridley, who wrote the script for 12 Years a Slave.

All Is By My Side focuses on the revolutionary musician's life between 1966 and 1967 - the year an unknown Jimmy James became Jimi Hendrix, the man who redefined rock ‘n’ roll guitar-playing.
