Trailer for ARGO arrives

Ben Affleck is one of the best directors working today.

Be it his masterful debut directorial effort GONE BABY GONE, or his thrilling, if flawed, outing, THE TOWN, Affleck has become this generation’s Clint Eastwood, but back when he was actually making worthwhile projects.

And now, thanks to The Film Stage, we have our first trailer for his next film, ARGO. And it looks just as great.

The film stars Affleck, Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler and Richard Kind, amongst others, and follows the story of a group of CIA agents who are sent into Tehran under the guise of a Canadian film crew, with the hopes of rescuing some hostages.  Personally, I absolutely love this cast and Affleck as a director, so I really hope that this project lives up to the hype and potential. The story itself is really interesting, and while the blend of genres has me a little worried, this trailer is fantastic.
