In the ring

Knock-out movie
Fighting spirit in Ali biopic

With wit and athletic genius, with defiant rage and inner grace, Muhammad Ali forever changed the American landscape.

Fighting all comers, Ali took on the law, conventions, the status quo and the war - as well as the fists in front of him.

He both ignited and mirrored the conflicts of his time and ours to become one of the most admired fighters in the world. Forget, now, what you thought you knew.

Will Smith as Ali

Will Smith as Ali

Behind Ali's seismic accomplishments, superstar Will Smith and Academy Award nominated director/writer Michael Mann will take you into the heart and life of the boxer, the legend and, more importantly, the man.

The film spans Ali's life, from his 1964 title fight against Sonny Liston to 1974's Rumble In The Jungle with George Foreman. In between are many flashbacks to Ali's childhood and an era of racial turmoil in 1960s America.

Will Smith beefs up his physique in a remarkable transformation and Mann directs the fight sequences at breathtaking speed.
