"It's about distraction. It's about focus. The brain is slow and it can't multitask. Tap him here, take from there." Will Smith offers this friendly advice to his latest protege played by Margot Robbie in the first teaser trailer for Warner Bros. upcoming heist comedy thriller Focus.

Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he's teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off.

Three years later, the former flame, now an accomplished femme fatale, shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes race car circuit. In the midst of Nicky's latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop...And the consummate con man off his game.
