The 3rd of our “based on a true story” films. This looks amazing too. I was a fan of The Town and Affleck has a knack for film making. The movie is based on a declassified situation that happened during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. The very idea of this being true is so nuts it had to have actually happen. To get the six escaped hostages out of Iran the US authorized a rescue mission under the pretense of a sci-fi movie being filmed and the hostages were part of the crew.
This begs to be seen. Once again an amazing cast wit Affleck, Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, and John Goodman. I swear 2012 is turning into one of the best years ever for going to the movies.
