Ben Affleck's Argo Gets A New UK Poster
If the buzz turns out to be real, then Ben Affleck's Argo could end up being one of the best movies of 2012. In the last month the film has played at a number of film festivals, from Telluride to Toronto, and critics have been going crazy for it, praising its mix of humor and armrest-gripping tension. But while Affleck's Iranian hostage crisis drama will be arriving soon in the United States, set to be released on October 12th, foreign markets have a small wait ahead of them. While there are select international countries that will get the film at the end of October, most will have to wait until early November to see it. Fortunately, that means they will keep producing cool looking promotional art like this new poster.
Cine1 has posted a one-sheet for Argo from the UK, and though I'll admit it's a tad generic and uses the familiar blue-and-orange combo, it's still a slick piece of art. Check it out below and see it full size over at the source.
Based on a true story, the film stars Affleck as Tony Mendez, a CIA exfiltration specialist who is called in when six Americans is trapped during the Iranian revolution. With the help of the agency, a producer from Hollywood (Alan Arkin) and a brilliant make-up artist (John Goodman), Mendez puts a forth a plan to create a fake science fiction film production to get into Iran and to rescue the hostages. Chris Terrio wrote the script based on an article by Joshuah Bearman and the movie co-stars Bryan Cranston, Talyor Schilling, Philip Baker Hall, Tate Donovan, Chris Messina, Kyle Chandler, Clea DuVall, Titus Welliver, Scoot McNairy and Rory Cochrane.
