The new Will Smith film, Focus opened in the UK this weekend and although the majority was shot on location in New Orleans, the opening sequence where the two main characters first meet was in fact shot in New York City.
Will Smith is Nicky Spurgeon, an extremely accomplished con man who takes an amateur con artist, Jess played by Margot Robbie, under his wing. Nicky and Jess become romantically involved, and with Nicky's profession of being a liar and a cheater for a living, he soon realizes that deception and love are things that don't go together. They split, only to see each other three years later... And things get messy.
Other New York-based films for Will Smith include Men in Black, Hitch and I Am Legend, whereas Margot Robbie has only appeared in one alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. Will and Margot will reunite in the forthcoming Suicide Squad due for release in 2016.
