Ali, the Muhammad Ali biopic starring Will Smith in one of his most memorable roles, will return to theaters this weekend, as Sony Pictures re-releases the film in limited release in homage and celebration of the life of the American legend. The film’s release will be limited to a few hundred locations nationwide.

Commenting on the announcement, Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, “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 2001 film received two Academy Award nominations, for Best Actor for Will Smith as Ali and for Best Supporting Actor for Jon Voight as Howard Cosell.
