Will Smith and Margot Robbie team up for an extraordinary con in, Focus. In the film Smith plays  Nicky, a veteran con artist, who takes a novice named Jess (Margot Robbie) under his wing. While Nicky teaches Jess the tricks of the trade, the pair become romantically involved; but, when Jess gets uncomfortably close, Nicky ends their relationship. Three years later, Nicky is in Buenos Aires working a very dangerous scheme when Jess -- now an accomplished femme fatale -- unexpectedly shows up. Her appearance throws Nicky for a loop at a time when he cannot afford to be off his game. The movie also stars Adrian Martinez, Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney.  Apollo Robbins ( known as a professional "Gentleman Thief" and master of illusion )served as a consultant, conceiving and choreographing original sleight-of-hand maneuvers.

Focus opens in theaters across the country on February 27th, 2015
