Win Passes To The Advance Screening of ARGO In St. Louis

By  |  89 Comments

Critic Roger Ebert proclaimed, “The winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture will be Ben Affleck’s tense new thriller ARGO.”

Based on true events, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and GK Films’ dramatic thriller ARGO chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis – the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (“The Town,” “Good Will Hunting”) directs and stars in the film, which is being produced by Academy Award® winner George Clooney (“Syriana”), Oscar® nominee Grant Heslov (“Good Night, and Good Luck.”) and Affleck. ARGO will be in theaters on October 12.

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 the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

    I am going with 444 days at that time the news used to have a small ” sign “over the anchors shoulder saying America held hostage and it would count off the days. It was depressing at the time
