With the recent passing of “The Greatest”, Muhammad Ali, Sony Pictures will be re-releasing their 2001 Michael Mann-directed biopic Ali, starring Will Smith as the legendary boxer. And it will be coming this weekend.
Rory Bruer, President of Worldwide Distribution of Sony Pictures, had this to say about the re-release:
“With the passing of Muhammad Ali, we have received many requests for this film to return to theaters, in celebration of his life. 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. Muhammad Ali truly was The Greatest, and this tribute is a great way to honor him.”
The release will happen in a few hundred theaters nationwide. Check your local theaters to see the availability of the re-release of Ali.
