New 'Focus' Trailer Introduces Will Smith As The World's Greatest Con Man
“Never drop the con,” Will Smith tells Margot Robbie in the new trailer for heist movie Focus. “Die with the lie.” But how far is he willing to go to follow his own advice?
The movie, directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, follows Smith’s conman Nicky and Robbie’s Jess as they meet up again after three years apart — at exactly the wrong time for each other’s plans. "I had what I needed -- and then the girl walked in," as Smith puts it, in his best noir narration.
Written and directed by Crazy Stupid Love’s Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the movie also features Rodrigo Santoro (300) and House of Cards’ Gerald McRaney. Denise Di Novi is the movie’s producer.
Focus opens Feb. 27, 2015.
