ARGO / Ben Affleck’s latest venture, Argo, gets its first trailer release today and the film looks nothing short of spectacular. Following Affleck’s successful directorial run thus far (“The Town” and “Gone Baby Gone”), Argo appears to follow suit. Telling the interesting story of extracting a group of Americans during an Iranian revolution, Ben Affleck plays Tony Mendez, the man with the scheme to front a bogus science fiction film shoot in attempt to mask the extraction of the Americans. The trailer plays out well and which excites me even more to see the film, not only for the unique story and Affleck’s directing, but for the ensemble cast as well, including Alan Arkin, Tate Donovan (“Damages”), and Chris Messina, the genius that is Bryan Cranstan, and one of my favorite actors of all-time, John Goodman. I also expect this to be a strong Academy Award contender.
Expect To See It: October 12th, 2012
