Warner Bros. has released a new Focus trailer for Crazy, Stupid, Love. directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s upcoming caper. The film revolves around a seasoned con man named Nicky (Will Smith) who becomes romantically involved with Jess, a novice con artist (Margot Robbie), only to subsequently break things off when she gets too close for comfort. Three years later, Jess—now an accomplished femme fatale—pops back into Nicky’s life, throwing his latest scheme into jeopardy. This trailer is much lighter and more comedic than the previous one, showing off more of the “caper” side of the film than the intense drama. I imagine the pic’s success will hinge on the chemistry between Smith and Robbie, who are already poised to reteam in WB’s DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad.
Watch the new Focus trailer after the jump. The film also stars Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney. Focus opens in theaters on February 27, 2015.
