New ‘Argo’ Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming drama ARGO has come online, and you can watch it below.

In theaters this Friday, the film based on a true events 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 (Ben 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.

Affleck, who also directed the film is joined by Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kerry Bishe, Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Tate Donovan, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Michael Parks, Chris Messina and Taylor Schilling.
