The trailer for Ben Affleck's political thriller Argo has hit the net, take a look:
Back behind the camera again after two critically successful efforts in Gone Baby Gone and The Town
, Affleck has brought to the screen the true story of a group of people tasked with extracting US citizens from a turbulent Iran under the guise of a Hollywood production. The trailer doesn't really get good until Aerosmith kicks in and all the tension mounts - the little thirty second segment in the middle that sells the ZANY premise of the film makes it seem a little schizophrenic - but Argo does appear to be another potentially solid film from Affleck the director.
Fascinating Fact: Jack Kirby, co-creator of The Avengers alongside Stan Lee, was involved in the Argo operation.
and will be played by Michael Parks (the Sheriff with the shades
in Kill Bill).
What do you think, does Argo look like a good follow up to The Town? Does Ben Affleck look cool with a beard? Will you ever trust anyone other than Ben Affleck to direct Ben Affleck in a movie again?
