FOCUS is Australia’s #1 Film – Roadshow Media Release


Australia’s own Margot Robbie and Hollywood superstar Will Smith have stolen the hearts of local audiences with FOCUS becoming our #1 film.

The blockbuster comedy has grossed $5.39million at the Australian box office charging to #1 for the past three days (Fri-Sun).

In FOCUS, Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes involved with novice con artist Jess (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.

Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love), the film also stars Rodrigo Santoro, Gerald McRaney, Adrian Martinez and BD Wong.

FOCUS opened in Australian cinemas on March 5 and is rated MA15+.
