Miles Ahead is released in the UK on April 22

The first trailer has been released for Miles Ahead; the biopic of Miles Davis directed by and starring Don Cheadle.

The film is set in 1979, during Davis’ five-year period away from the public eye. For anyone expecting a straight biopic, Cheadle has described the film as “a gangster pic. It’s a movie that Miles Davis would have wanted to star in.”
