Argo is based on a true story about the daring rescue of hostages held at the American Embassy in Tehran, Iran after the revolution of 1979, in which CIA agents, Hollywood studios and a fake science fiction movie were actually successful in rescuing some of the hostages.
The flick looks promising and is packed with big name stars. Ben not only directs the film, but also stars as the lead CIA agent alongside Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Bryan Cranston and Tate Donovan.
Looks pretty exciting... Right?
