Music and film fans alike have been awaiting the first trailer of Miles Ahead - which not only tells the story of iconic jazz musician Miles Davis (played by Don Cheadle), but also acts as Cheadle's directorial debut – for quite some time. Principle photography for the biopic finally wrapped last summer after years in limbo while Cheadle raised the funds he needed to complete the film.

However, things appear to be back on track as Miles Ahead is set to close this year's New York Film Festival, taking place between September 25 and October 11. While a full trailer isn't available yet, you can see two very, very brief clips as part of the trailer to promote the New York Film Festival.

The film, which Cheadle insists isn't a traditional biopic, follows Davis after his record label steals his comeback album before he's ready for it to be heard. With the help of a music journalist (played by Ewan McGregor) he eventually hunts it down. Emayatzy Corinealdi (as Frances Taylor) and Keith Stanfield also co-star.

Sony Pictures Classics acquired the worldwide distribution rights to the move last month, however, a theatrical release date has not yet been set. Its first public screening will be on October 11th.
