Warner Bros. releases new posters of Ben Affleck's ARGO


Riding on the wave of successful premieres in Toronto and Telluride film festivals, Warner Bros. has just released two versions of international (outside U.S.) posters for Ben Affleck's gripping thriller “Argo.”

 Based on true events, “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenesof the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades.

Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (“The Town,” “Good Will Hunting”) directs and stars in the film, which is being produced by Academy Award® winner George Clooney (“Syriana”), Oscar® nominee GrantHeslov (“Good Night, and Good Luck.”) and Affleck.

On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boilingpoint, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52Americans 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 (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.

“Argo”also stars Oscar® winner Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”),Bryan Cranston (TV’s “Breaking Bad”) and John Goodman (“YouDon’t Know Jack”). The main cast also includes Kerry Bishé,Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Tate Donovan, CleaDuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy,Chris Messina, Michael Parks, and Taylor Schilling.

Affleckis directing the film from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a selection from Master in Disguise by Antonio Mendez. David Klawans, Chris Brigham, Graham King, Tim Headington, Chay Carter and Nina Wolarsky are serving as executive producers.

Slated for release in the Philippines in October 17, “Argo” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros.Entertainment Company.
