Will Smith's new movie "Focus" has taken over from erotic romance movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey' at the box office, opening with $19.1 million.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Warner Bros.' "Focus" easily topped all competitors on a weekend with little competition at North American multiplexes. In second place was the Colin Firth spy thriller 'Kingsman: The Secret Service.'

After two weeks of dominating the box office and making $486.2 million globally, "Fifty Shades of Grey" went down to the fourth place with an estimated $10.9 million.

Speaking on the modest box office opening of his movie 'Focus', Will Smith says he can't allow the performance of a movie to determine his self esteem;

"I can't allow the box-office success, or lack thereof, to determine my self-image," he said to The Associated Press.
