The film is based on Tony Mendez's account of the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran, Iran during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. The film stars Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin and John Goodman. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 12, 2012.

In 1979, during the Iranian Revolution, militants take over the U.S. embassy in Tehran and hold 52 Americans hostage. Six other Americans escape and hide in the Canadian ambassador's home. The Central Intelligence Agency and its specialist Tony Mendez (Affleck) put together a plan to help the six Americans escape Iran.

Argo is based on the Canadian Caper that took place during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 and 1980. The film is directed by Ben Affleck. Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay based on the 2007 Wired article "How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran" by Joshuah Bearman. Producers George Clooney, Grant Heslov and David Klawans set up a project based on the article in the same year, and Affleck's attachment to the project was announced in February 2011. In the following June, Alan Arkin was the first person cast in the film. After the rest of the roles were cast, filming began in Los Angeles, California in August of 2011. Additional filming also took place in Washington, DC and Istanbul.

Argo has received positive reviews from film critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 94% of critics gave the film positive reviews based on a sample of 16, with an average score of 8.1 out of 10. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the film has received an average score of 75 based on 7 reviews.

After the film was previewed at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012, criticism arose that the film unfairly minimized the participation of the Canadian government, particularly that of Ambassador Kenneth D. Taylor, in the extraction operation. This included the addition to the film of several fictional events for dramatic reasons, as well as a postscript text indicating that the CIA let Taylor take the credit for political purposes, implying that he did not deserve the accolades he received. Affleck noted, "Because we say it's based on a true story, rather than this is a true story, we’re allowed to take some dramatic license. There’s a spirit of truth." However, Affleck did respond by changing the postscript text to read, “The involvement of the CIA complemented efforts of the Canadian embassy to free the six held in Tehran. To this day the story stands as an enduring model of international co-operation between governments.”
