Six clips from director/star Ben Affleck’s thriller Argo have been released.  The film, based on a true story, centers on a CIA agent (Affleck) who attempts to rescue six Americans trapped in the home of the Canadian ambassador during the 1979 Iranian Revolution.  The rescue mission was to go in under the auspices of filming a science fiction movie entitled “Argo”.  The pic screened to a wildly positive response at the Toronto Film Festival (read Matt’s review right here), and earned a spot on our “Most Anticipated” list for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Hit the jump to check out the clips.  The film also stars John GoodmanAlan ArkinBryan CranstonKyle ChandlerKerry BisheTate DonovanVictor GarberChris MessinaTitus WelliverZeljko Ivanek, and Taylor Schilling.  Argo opens on October 12th.

Here’s the synopsis for Argo:

Based on true events, “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.  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.
