Based on the declassified true story, Hollywood hijinks and high-stakes espionage collide in Argo, arriving onto Blu-ray and DVD on 4th March 2013 courtesy of Warner Home Video.

Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis, focusing on the little-known role that the CIA and Hollywood played.

Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (The Town, Good Will Hunting) directs and stars in the film, which is produced by Oscar® nominee Grant Heslov (Good Night and Good Luck), Affleck and Oscar® winner George Clooney (Syriana). Argo also stars Bryan Cranston ( Breaking Bad), Oscar® winner Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine) and John Goodman (Trouble with the Curve).

Both the Blu-ray and DVD include UltraViolet, which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the standard definition theatrical version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

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 Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor (Garber).

Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Mendez (Affleck), to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
