Directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love) next film Focus just released a second trailer. For those of you who weren’t hyped about the first trailer, this one offers more humor between the characters of Will Smith and Margot Robbie. Both are terrific actors on their own terms, and judging by the trailers it looks like Focus will heavily rely on their onscreen chemistry, which after two trailers is looking good.
In Focus, 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 hits theaters on February 27, 2015
