Superstar Will Smith gives the performance of his career as boxing legend Muhammad Ali in a visually amazing epic drama from Academy Award® nominated director Michael Mann. Muhammad Ali thrilled the world with his ground-breaking boxing victories in the '60s and '70s. But the man behind the legend is grappling with a tumultuous romantic life, his deeply held religious beliefs and the pressures ofstaying on top. A quick-witted, winning personality and strong friendships with close associates, including renowned newscaster Howard Cosell (Golden Globe® nominee Jon Voight), help Ali "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee." But faced with a life-changing conflict outside of the ring, the famously opinionated boxer is forced to rely on the one person he knows the best: himself.
Will Smith puts on the gloves and steps between the ropes as "Ali," arguably the most facinating personality in sports history in this biopic from Academy Award nominated director Michael Mann.
Between 1964 and 1974, the brash, motor-mouthed Ali quickly dominates his sport, meets and marries his first wife, converts to Islam, and defies the U.S. government by refusing to submit to military conscription for duty in Vietnam.
