Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who were also responsible for Crazy, Stupid Love, the film charts the relationship between a seasoned con-artist (Smith) and the young woman (Robbie) he takes under his wing.

Oscar-nominee Smith, who has previously starred in The Pursuit of Happyness and Hitch, plays Nicky, who teaches novice Jess the tricks of the trade before abruptly ending their relationship.

But three years later their paths cross once again in the midst of a dangerous scheme – and this time Jess is an accomplished femme fatale.

Robbie, who starred in The Wolf of Wall Street, also appears alongside Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney.

The film is produced by Denise Di Novi and executive produced by Charlie Gogolak and Stan Wlodkowski.

Focus is scheduled for release in the UK on 27 February 2015.
