Argo is yet another film that Ben Affleck directed and starred in that’s riding another big wave of critical praise and awards season anticipation. Some new images from the film have hit and you can check them out below.
Ben Affleck’s latest winning film, Argo, is the true story about how the CIA used a covert operation during the Iranian Hostage Crisis in the late 70′s. Many biopics like this can get dull or preachy, but Affleck along with a strong script by Chris Terrio really keep the pacing brilliant in this film. The script is based on the Wired story, How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran, by Joshuah Bearman
Argo Movie Synopsis
Based on true events, “Argo” 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. 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.
