The first trailer for Focus, a romantic comedy-drama starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie, has been released.
The film is directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa – who have collaborated throughout their careers on films including Crazy, Stupid, Love and I Love You Phillip Morris – and revolves around Will Smith, a veteran con artist who becomes romantically involved with an up-and-coming grifter played by Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street). The couple end up in Buenos Aires, on opposite sides of the same scam.
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were originally meant to star, then Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart; all dropped out due to scheduling problems. Focus will be Smith’s first leading role since 2013’s After Earth.
The film is released in the US on February 27, 2015.
