ComingSoon has a first look at André Benjamin (aka André 3000 of the hip-hop duo OutKast Hey Ya) in his Men's Jumbo Afro Wig for All Is By My Side, the unauthorized Jimi Hendrix biopic that stars Benjamin as the late rock legend. Being unauthorized as it is, the film is not likely to feature Jimi Hendrix playing any Jimi Hendrix songs, which is sort of a bummer considering Jimi Hendrix doing his songs is sort of what a Jimi Hendrix biopic should be about. But the film does have Captain America's Hayley Atwell as Hendrix-discoverer Linda Keith, and she is doing all-right in her Deluxe Brenda Starr Wig, so there's that. Have a look below.

Hey, remember Four Brothers, that 2005 movie where Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, 1/2 OutKast, and another guy played non-biological brothers hunting down their foster mom's murderer? No? Well, it happened, and Paramount is now at work planning an inexplicable sequel sure to please all those die-hard Four Brothers fans. Guess what it's called! Why, yes, it is going to be called Five Brothers! Good guess. That's one more brother! (Actually--Four Brothers spoiler!--it's two new brothers, because one already died in the first movie.) So many brothers! So fraternally extreme! I can't wait! No one can wait. Everyone is freaking out.
Still no word on how the Jake Gyllenhaal/Tobey Maguire drama Brothers and the tiger-cubs-reunited family adventure Two Brothers will be tied in with this vengeance storyline when they finally get around to making Three Brothers.
When your most famous, most popular movies were your fast-paced, "in-your-face" criminal stories starring Jason Statham (we'll say your other movie was a flop starring your transvestite wife), how do you set your new fast-paced, "in-your-face" criminal story starring Jason Statham apart?
If you're Guy Ritchie, the appropriate answer is "by giving the usually-bald Jason Statham the hair of Bam Margera, then making Ocean's Eleven with lesser celebrities, but still title it after firearms like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels."
In fairness, Revolver does look less obnoxiously hip than Snatch, and it must be smarter since it keeps drawing awkward chess analogies.
