Buzz is building around Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” a thriller set in 1980 based on a “declassified true story” about a CIA mission– with a Hollywood twist. In order to rescue trapped Americans from Tehran, Iran, Affleck’s CIA agent concocts a plot to scout film locations there. Thus the “Argo” tagline: “The most important movie of all time was never made.”
As Affleck’s third film as a director heads for Toronto, it’s also a strong Oscar contender. Check out new footage in the TV spot below to see a quick glimpse of what we described as “The Insider” on steroids. The movie also stars Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, and Kyle Chandler.
