At first, we were skeptical too. It didn’t seem like Ben Affleck would turn out to be a good director. However, surprisingly, he has.
His next film is the upcoming Argo, which features Affleck in the title role of CIA officer Tony Mendez, an “exfiltration” specialist, who develops a plan to free six Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran while it was under attack from Iranian militants.
The first trailer for the film has arrived and in it we see some of Mendez’ plan forming and get more of a feel for the film itself. Gotta say it, this looks pretty good
Argo, which is set to release on October 12, also features Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Victor Garber, Scoot McNairy and John Goodman. Check out the trailer after the break.
