Focus

"I can convince anyone of anything." Following the first look photos this morning, the first trailer for Will Smith's latest film Focus has arrived. The film is directed by Crazy Stupid Love filmmaking duo John Requa & Glenn Ficarra, and they seem to be injecting the romance from that film into the world of deception. Smith plays a con man who takes a beautiful woman (Margot Robbie) under his wing, but while he's turning her into a great con artist, he's also falling for her. That complicates things when she has to use her sexuality to help pull off a big job. It doesn't look bad, but also doesn't seem remarkable. Watch?

Here's the first trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Focus direct from YouTube:

Focus is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love, I Love You Phillip Morris). The film follows a professional conman (Will Smith) and someone just learning the criminal art (Margot Robbie of The Wolf of Wall Street and About Time) and how their past relationship comes back into play when they meet up again years later as one of them is planning an elaborate con in Buenos Aires. Rodrigo Santoro also stars in the film which Warner Bros. Pictures releases on February 27th, 2015.

Good to see Will as a leading man again. It doesn't look bad but con movies always disappoint me because I'm ALWAYS expecting the twist. It's difficult to lower your guard.

There is a twist of sorts in this but it's pretty lame. lol

He needs to play a villain to switch things up. He's such coward when it comes to changing his image.

I know, right? That's why he should have done Django Unchained. Something a bit edgier.

Saw this at a preview screening earlier this year. I thought Will Smith was miscast for the role. Jaime Foxx would have been better. And that ending....ugh.....

It looks good, I'd watch it.

It looks very paint by numbers, he falls for her after multiple "you don't get involved speeches." She gets too close on a job, he gets jealous swoops in to "save her," ruins the job. Both get in trouble..blah blah blah. I'll pass or wait for netflix when my wife tries to make me watch it.

Also, in the end, she's the one who cons him.

Bleh.

I'd really like to see Smith play a true villain, like Denzel in Training Day or Tom Cruise in Collateral. He's always a good or sympathetic character. I'd like to see a different side.

Let me guess; con man takes on student. Student is really good. Student apparently screws things up, so that con man has to fix it by spending a lot of money. In fact, con man gets conned by student. Matchstick men 2.

Feels like I haven't seen a new Will Smith movie in YEARS

Yeah, Margot Robbie. And again, Margot Robbie... I don't see any other reason to see this flick...
