Ali

Will Smith transforms into Muhammad Ali in this biopic that spans the champ's early days as Cassius Clay to the fight of his life, 1974's "Rumble in the Jungle." Smith was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Ali and his rise in sports and the formation of his controversial political ideals, including his refusal to fight in the Vietnam War.
