Academy Award-nominated actor Will Smith returns to the big screen next weekend with 'Focus', a con-man thriller co-starring Margot Robbie, and he is certainly hoping for different results than his last effort - the cataclysmic disaster of 'After Earth', which he cites as the most painful failure of his career in the March 2015 issue of Esquire magazine.

"Wild Wild West was less painful than After Earth because my son [Jaden Smith] was involved in After Earth and I led him into it. That was excruciating. What I learned from that failure is how you win. I got reinvigorated after the failure of After Earth. I stopped working for a year and a half. I had to dive into why it was so important for me to have number-one movies. And I never would have looked at myself in that way," the 46-year-old stud tells the magazine.

Before continuing, "After Earth comes out, I get the box-office numbers on Monday and I was devastated for about twenty-four minutes, and then my phone rang and I found out my father had cancer. That put it in perspective—viciously." Wow! Peep two more shots from his shoot below:
