Ben Affleck’s Argo heads to UK Steelbook from Zavvi
Ben Affleck’s Oscar winning real-life drama Argo is heading to UK steelbook, courtesy of a Zavvi exclusive, on June 10th.
While the movie’s historical accuracy has been questioned, there’s no doubt that even with a sprinkling of artistic licence, the story is an incredible, edge of seat thriller.
Check out the pre-order link, extras – which include an audio commentary and extended cut – and artwork below:
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.
