Argo Gets UK Release Date

Posted December 18, 2012 05:50 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryThe UK branch of Warner Brothers has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray Ben Affleck's Argo (2012), starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman. The preliminary release date set by the studio is March 4th.

Ben Affleck directs and stars in this political thriller based on real events that took place during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. In November 1979, the American embassy in Tehran is stormed by militants and 52 Americans are taken hostage. In the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to escape and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing that it is only a matter of time before they are found out and probably killed, CIA 'exfiltration' specialist Tony Mendez (Affleck) implements a life-or-death undercover operation to smuggle them safely out of the country.

Special Features:
  • Eye Witness Account - Relive the takeover of the US Embassy in November of 1979 and the daring rescue mission in January of 1980 through the eyes of those that lived it.
  • Audio Commentary
  • Rescued from Tehran: We Were There - President Jimmy Carter, Tony Mendez and the actual house guests recount the real-life harrowing experience they endured.
  • Argo: Absolute Authenticity - From characters to heart-stopping action, Ben Affleck's eye and ear for hard-hitting realism and attention to exacting detail has become his signature as an A-list filmmaker.
  • Argo: The CIA & Hollywood Connection - Director Ben Affleck and former CIA agent Tony Mendez give a firsthand view of the actual documents and cover story used to create the phony movie Argo that had all of Hollywood believing in.
  • Escape from Iran: The Hollywood Option - Escape From Iran commemorates the 25th anniversary of the "Canadian Caper," taking us back to this startling affair through the direct testimony of the Americans who found sanctuary at the Canadian embassy in Tehran, and the Canadians who risked their own safety to shelter their closest neighbors

This flick is as historically accurate as Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter. If Affleck want to show the real competence level of the CIA at the time he should of portrayed Oliver North. It was a Canadian operation from beginning to end and the CIA was at best 2nd fiddle, not the other way around and good thing too, their incompetence threatened to blow the caper. Oh and here is a fun fact: Massaud Rajavi, now a CIA 'ally', spearheaded the Embassy siege.

That's true, uther. The Americans bungled their one attempt (Operation: Eagle Claw on April 24, 1980) where 8 US servicemen and 1 Iranian civilian died.

Haven't even seen Argo. Would you guys say the historical inaccuracies are as bad as U-571? If they're as bad as you say they are, why has Argo recieved Critical Acclaim while U-571 is only remembered as the single most historically inaccurate film ever made? Obviously things like acting, direction, cinematography, sound design and all that are considerably better (I assume from what I've heard). I'm not picking a fight or anything like that, I'm genuinly interested to know because I haven't seen Argo yet.

It is a movie, not a documentary. Get over it.
