Smart, stylish, sexy – this will definitely be a film to watch!
Focus stars Will Smith as Nicky, an experienced and successful con man who mentors rookie con artist Jess Barrett. As two people who lie for a living, problems arise when they get romantically involved with each other. They decide to split up, but they bump into each other again three years later while Nicky is on a job, and things start to get messy.
Will Smith has a knack for starring in very stylish films – Hitch, The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds for example. Hustle films in general are also very stylish, think American Hustle. Add to that Margot Robbie, who shot to fame after playing DiCaprio’s model girlfriend in The Wolf of Wall Street and you have all the ingredients necessary for a very classy movie.
Set for release on 27th of Feburary (that’s this Friday!) I fully expect this film to top the box office for this weekend. How it does in terms of figures compared to other films out so far this year, I personally don’t think this film has the clout that others have had this year, so I’m not expecting it to make serious waves past the next few weeks or so. I think this will be a good film to go and watch though – the perfect date night film if you’re too squeamish for 50 Shades this weekend!
