NEW YORK (AP) - The 2001 Muhammad Ali biopic “Ali” will return to theaters this weekend to celebrate the late boxing legend.

Sony Pictures said Wednesday that Michael Mann’s film, starring Will Smith, will play in a few hundred theaters nationwide. “Ali” earned Oscar nominations for Smith and supporting actor Jon Voight as Howard Cosell.

Following Ali’s death Friday at 74, numerous theaters have also scheduled screenings of “When We Were Kings.” The 2006 Oscar-nominated documentary chronicles the 1974 “Rumble in the Jungle” between Ali and George Foreman.
