An easy mistake to make…made even easier by the fact that M and N are so close on the keyboard…you gotta know the difference between “home in” and “hone in.”
This is incorrect:

Daniel Craig‘s time as James Bond was peppered with explosive action, but the trailer for a new documentary chronicling his evolution into the iconic spy hones in on the introspective emotions the actor grappled with after joining the spectacular franchise.
To “hone” means to sharpen; the expression to “home in on” something means to get closer. “Hone in on” is never correct. Not a mistake you want to make, whether it’s in the first sentence of a nationally available article or not.
