Known for his exploits inside and outside the ring, the trials and tribulations faced by the man formerly known as Cassius Clay come to light in this epic biopic. Brash and outspoken, the boxer's greatest test comes at the height of the military draft, when he must determine whether or not he should fight in a war that he does not believe in. It was his formidability in the ring that made him famous, it was boastfulness that made him a star and his bold political stance that made him an icon.
Ali explores the legendary boxer's life as he rises to prominence and the challenges he faces outside of boxing. Starring Will Smith, Mario Van Peebles, Jamie Foxx and more, Ali is a breathtaking look at an American hero who stood up for his beliefs. Tune in on Friday, February 24 at 8P/7C for the premiere of Ali on BET Star Cinema.
