Argo Trailer

Here's the first trailer for Ben Affleck's Argo, the film based on CIA agent Tony Mendez's memoir The Master of Disguise, telling the true story of a secret mission to rescue American hostages in Iran by disguising an extraction team as a film crew scouting locations for a non-existent sci-fi movie. Totally befitting that plot description, this movie looks like exactly what I wanted it to look like since first hearing about it: a lost episode of Mission: Impossible. Sure, the setting's about a decade late, but the fashions and hairstyles are still enjoyably dated, and there's even a whole sequence of the Phelps-like mastermind Mendez (Affleck) assembling his team! I can't wait for this one. Unfortunately, it doesn't open until fall.
