A brand new Focus trailer has dropped, showcasing a bigger and better look at the upcoming comedy-thriller starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie.
Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, best known for their work on I Love You Phillip Morris and Crazy, Stupid, Love., Focus tells the story of a veteran grifter (Smith) who becomes involved with an amateur con artist (Robbie). After she gets too close, he breaks it off. They meet up again three year later during a high stakes race car circuit in Buenos Aires.
This new trailer drives home the tone in a much better way than the previous trailer did, showing off what appears to be a decent balance of romance, comedy, and thriller elements. The chemistry between the two attractive stars seems to be there, so here’s hoping the film relies on more than just the two to bring an entertaining story to life.
Check out two new character posters beneath the official synopsis.
Focus also stars Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney.
Official synopsis for Focus:
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.
