Focus releases new stills

FocusBannerWill Smith and Margot Robbie deliver a new batch of stills fresh from the set of Focus

This new movie stars Smith as a confidence trickster who sets about training a rookie (Robbie) in his arts until he forces himself to stop after developing feelings for her. He lives in a world in which trust is paramount and where there is no room for emotion and so initially seems to have made the best choice in getting rid of Robbie. But that’s before she returns out of the blue and steers his world into chaos.

Now I am hesitatingly looking forward to Focus. It’s hopefully going to be a big, interesting role for Robbie who we saw most prolifically in The Wolf of Wall Street back in 2013. Also it should give Smith the kind of cocksure roles he is so good in, as well as a sizable amount of depth in which to plunge into when the events of the film start going against him.

As to the new images released, they don’t really tell us much more than we already know; we just get hints of seduction, betrayal and surveillance. What interests me most about these stills is it’s really hard to peg the nature of  Robbie’s character. Is she going to be quite a passive aggressive con artist? Is she going to actively set out to make Smith’s life hell? Or will she turn out to be on his side? Hopefully this uncertainty will transfer over into the film itself.

Here are some of the new images for you to peruse…

  1. I think Margot Robbie is fascinating but I am SO over Will Smith.

    1. Yeah I’m looking forward to Robbie more than Smith too… but I’m not done with him and I hope this gives him a role to sink his teeth into.

  2. I think this thing will be a lot of fun and I find the pairing of Will Smith and Margot Robbie quite inspired actually. Love the new promo images!

    1. Yeah I really hope this is as fun as we think it will be! You’re right it is quite interesting casting, I hope I telos Robbie’s star rise even higher as I really liked her in Wolf.
