ARGO Extended Edition Set for 12/3 Release

On December 3, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release Argo Extended Edition on Blu-ray, featuring an additional nine minutes of footage that delves deeper into CIA specialist Tony Mendez's personal relationships with his wife and son. Based on the true story of the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans during the Iran hostage crisis, the film also focuses on the little-known role that the CIA and Hollywood played. Ben Affleck (The Town) directed.

Available in Blu-ray (at $49.99 SRP) with UltraViolet* digital copy, Argo Extended Edition will be offered in time for holiday gift giving. This new edition includes three brand new special features: Ben Affleck's Balancing Act and Argo Declassifiedfeaturettes; plus a mash-up entitled Argo F*ck! Yourself. In addition, there are collectible premiums of a one-sheet poster, map of Tehran, reproduction of Tony Mendez's CIA ID card, and a 40-page book with behind-the-scenes photos, production notes, cast bios and more.

Jeff Baker, WBHE's Executive Vice President and General Manager, Theatrical Catalog, commented, "We are very pleased to be collaborating with Ben and his team for a second time. This new edition of Argo is even more enriched by the never-before-seen bonus footage and fascinating collectible memorabilia."
