Now this looks like a cream-filled treat. Ben Affleck’s follow-up to “The Town”, “Argo” is based on an incident from a ways back when the CIA cooked up an elaborate and somewhat brilliant plan to save some Yankees from militants in Iran. As with his previous flicks, Affleck has rounded up an amazing cast for the picture – he’s in it, alongside Bryan Cranston (“Drive”), John Goodman (“Red State”), Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”), Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”) and Tate Donovan (“Damages”). Sure to be another winner for “that guy from Phantoms who now directs awesome films”.


Based on true events, ARGO is a dramatic thriller that chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades.

Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (The Town, Good Will Hunting) directs and stars in the film, which is being produced by Academy Award® winner George Clooney (Syriana), Oscar® nominee Grant Heslov (Good Night, and Good Luck) and Affleck.

On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

ARGO also stars Oscar® winner Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina and Michael Parks.

Affleck directs the film from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a selection from The Master in Disguise by Antonio J. Mendez and the Wired Magazine article The Great Escape by Joshuah Bearman.

ARGO will be released nationally on November 1, 2012.
