Argo Blu-ray

Posted December 22, 2012 12:10 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Brothers has officially announced and detailed its upcoming combo pack release of Ben Affleck's thriller Argo (2012), starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the United States on February 19th.

Based on real events, the dramatic thriller Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis, focusing on the little-known role that the CIA and Hollywood played—information that was not declassified until many years after the event. 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 Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Mendez, to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

Special Features:
  • Feature Length Picture in Picture: Eye Witness Account
  • Audio Commentary
  • Rescued from Tehran: We Were There
  • Argo: Absolute Authenticity
  • Argo: The CIA & Hollywood Connection
  • Escape From Iran: The Hollywood Option
  • UltraViolet

Easy blind buy for me. I loved Affleck's previous films Gone Baby Gone and The Town. The trailer gave me goosebumps. Can't wait.

Great film! This looks to be an excellent BD release as well. Ben Affleck is a powerhouse of a writer/director! Huge fan!

Looking forward to this film. Missed it in theaters.

However, I am concerned of getting this on day 1, since we had a problem with The Town having owned the first release and later, an extended cut was released.

Also, it says that the release date is Feb 19th on Amazon.

Mishal,

The first release of The Town included the extended cut.

Such a terrific movie. Next month's Oscar noms will yield Affleck his first Best Director nomination (and for George Clooney, his first producer nom for Best Picture), that you can guarantee.

I'm glad this disc is loaded with PiP, commentary and historical bonus features. I absolutely have to own this.

@Shanester: The company who made Amaray, Nexpak, is no longer in business. Most versions are now Scanavo and Vortex.

Over rated??? How??? This film didn't receive half the press it deserved. Overrated would mean that Warner Bros was shoving it down our throats every waking minute they could! ...and they didn't ! It is Oscar caliber and it will receive a few noted nods.

This film stands alone as yet another great film by Affleck and it also defines a great moment in American history!

@DJ IXS: Great ending? The stupid Hollywood ending at the airport? If so, I'd say that's the only part of this movie that wasn't good.

Excellent film. The overrated posts are laughable. But I'm not surprised to see it on this site, where 90% of our membership thinks Michael Bay is the greatest director ever. There are actually great, entertaining films out there that doesn't have CGI or huge explosions. Some of these films just have terrific acting and writing.

One of my favorites from 2012. Every department did a tremendous job. Especially thought Erik Aadahl and his team did a great job on the sound. Looking forward to this release! A Steelbook would be awesome.

Very overrated film. The script was weak, therefore acting suffered because it was just back and forth 1 liners without filling in and smoothing the lines with real and personal touches... like a typical TV drama. Hollywood seems very very confined by scripts these days, almost no deviation. Ben's acting was all right, he can't act with his eyes and does those loong fake blinks to fake emotion when stressing certain words in a sentence... lame. And of course he made himself the cool hero, even including the expected shirtless body shot and giving himself plenty of self aggrandizing scene entry/exit shots, always trying to seem so cool and slick for an "exfil" expert. He simply delivered his lines, he was never commanding on screen and never really drew much respect. As usual with most Hollywood films these days... he chose the heavily dramatic route. Certain scenes which really didn't need to be heavy were heaavvy and other scenes were quite campy, like the use of the cheezy uplifting music during the 'airport guard film explanation' scene. Overall, solid 7/10 but I'm hoping for much more from his next film
