Will Smith has the action hero thing down but in Focus the star rapper turned actor portrays a skilled con man who uses wits more than brawn.
From the looks of the trailer, there is way more to what Smith and his student, actress Margot Robbie, are scheming on.
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.
Focus is in theaters February 27, 2015. Check out the trailer for below.
