Teaser Trailer for Will Smith’s Heist Flick FOCUS


Hot on the heels of yesterday’s debut of the first two images, the first teaser trailer for the con artist romance Focus, starring Will Smith and the Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie has arrived.

Well Mr. Smith is back and rounding into form.

“It’s about distraction. It’s about focus. The brain is slow and it can’t multitask. Tap him here, take from there,”

Nicky (Smith), a seasoned master of misdirection offers this friendly advice to his protege, the novice con artist Jess (Robbie). However, things get complicated when they fall in love.

Penned and directed by the Crazy Stupid Love filmmaking duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, this kind of to heist films looks much more dramatic than I was expecting from its description as a comedy caper. Lol.

Either way, the fun game of cat and mouse brings Will Smith back to the kind of role that audiences love to see from him.

Also starring Rodrigo Santoro (300) and Gerald McRaney (TV’s House of Cards), Focus bows February 27, 2015.

Watch the teaser trailer below along with the first images.

Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame—now an accomplished femme fatale—shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop…and the consummate con man off his game.
