'Focus' Trailer: Will Smith and Margot Robbie Make Con Games Look Sexy

Dec 22, 2014

In 2016, Will Smith and Margot Robbie will be appearing as Deadshot and Harley Quinn in the DC Comics supervillain movie Suicide Squad, but you don't have to wait nearly that long to get your first dose of them together as criminals up to no good. The two star in Focus as seductive con artists who get in way over their head, as all con artists in movies tend to do.

Directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Crazy Stupid Love) from their own script, Focus also stars Rodrigo Santoro, Gerald McRaney and BD Wong (who also has Jurassic World coming out, so 2015 is a total BD Wong comeback year, right?). The below trailer is more about showing humor and the dizzying world Smith and Robbie play around in, so to make sense of the actual plot we turn to the official synopsis:

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 race-car 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.
