From the directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love comes the first official teaser trailer for Focus, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith and Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street).

Smith stars as Nicky Spurgeon, a master of deception, who takes on Robbie’s Jess Barrett as an intern in the art of misdirection. When things heat up between the pair, Nicky breaks it off, only for a newly femme fatale Jess to reappear three years later with money on her mind.

The start of this teaser feels oddly like a scene from Hitch, with Will Smith’s reassuring voice-over telling us that he can get “anyone to do anything”. What transpires in this trailer is as far from Hitch as you could get, as Nicky shows Jess all the tricks of the con trade, only to fall for her in the process.

The trailer has comedy, action, romance and plenty of chemistry between its leading duo, making this one of the many films to look forward to next year.

Focus is released nationwide on February 27, 2015.
