collider.com The first trailer and poster for Ben Affleck's Argo has gone online.  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 embassador during the 1979 Iranian Revolution.  The rescue mission was to go in under the auspices of filming a science fiction movie entitled "Argo".  The trailer makes the movie look like Ocean's Eleven combined with a tense historical thriller.  I really like what I'm seeing from the trailer, and there's a good chance Affleck could 3-for-3 in his successful directing career. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  The film also stars Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Kerry Bishe, and Alan Arkin.  Argo opens October 12th. Click over to Apple to see the trailer in HD. Here's the official 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.

Don't let the lower case letterings in his name fool you. He's quick and deadly with the headlines and he's always on target. His delivery could use more work though.
