Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning Argo is back with an Extended Edition on Blu-ray with UltraViolet digital copy! Taken from declassified government files about the real-life Iran hostage crisis that consumed headlines at the end of the turbulent '70s, Argo finds Ben playing a CIA "exfiltration" specialist who comes up with an audacious plan to extract the six Americans: devise a fake Hollywood sci-fi movie called Argo as a cover to allow a rescue team in behind enemy lines to pull it off. The Argo Extended Edition includes three brand-new special features: Argo Declassified, Ben Affleck's Balancing Act and the mash-up Argo F*ck! Yourself (in which Affleck leads an all-star review of Argo's classic line). The box set also includes collectible premiums -- a one-sheet poster, a map of Tehran, a reproduction of Tony Mendez's CIA ID card, and a 40-page book with behind-the-scenes photos, production notes, cast bios and more.
