Check Out Argo: Declassified Before The Film Hits Blu-ray On Februay 19
Argo is a movie that does a great job of marrying creative license with facts concerning the true tale of six escapees during the Iranian Hostage Crisis who hid in the Canadian Embassy for a time before needing to get out of the country. The film is hitting Blu-ray and DVD on February 19, and now Warner Bros. has released a lengthy segment explaining how Director Ben Affleck and the rest of the cast and crew were able to bring Argo to life on film with the help of the real-life people involved with the CIA operation.
“Argo: Declassified” walks viewers through the entirety of the CIA operation and explains how the script came together and how real-life events were either consolidated, fleshed out, or used in their entirety throughout the film. At a lengthy 28 minutes, the segment is extremely lengthy and fleshes out a lot of the little details viewers may have not noticed during a first viewing of the film. Additionally, several members of the famed six actually get a chance to talk about their remembrances of the long weeks in hiding and the big escape. It may be a long segment, but if you are a fan of the flick, it’s certainly worth a watch.
Argo’s Blu-ray release actually features plenty of bonus features, including other behind-the-scenes segments and a picture-in-picture device with plenty of extras. All in all, the Blu-ray will come with over four hours of bonus features (assumedly including the full-film audio commentary with Affleck). You can check out the full list of extras and decide if the Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe and SAG winning film is worth a purchase.
