This weekend, Sony Pictures will re-release the Muhammad Ali biopic Ali, which stars Will Smith as The Greatest.
Ali will be screened this weekend, limited to only a few hundred theaters, nationwide.
Ali garnered an Oscar nomination for Smith for best actor, as well as a best supporting actor nom for Jon Voight, for his portrayal of sports journalist Howard Cosell.
“With the passing of Muhammad Ali, we have received many requests for this film to return to theaters, in celebration of his life,” said Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “The film truly honors everything that made Ali one of the central figures of our time, a man who commanded his sport but whose personal faith and principles made him mean so much more.”
On Saturday, the actor took to Facebook to post a tribute to the boxer, writing, “You shook up the World! My Mentor & My Friend. You changed my Life.”
