Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, director/star Ben Affleck's fact-based thriller casts him as CIA officer Tony Mendez, tasked with getting six Americans hidden in Canada's Tehran embassy out of Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis. The "best bad idea" Mendez pitches involves everyone posing as the crew of a cheesy Hollywood sci-fi film, a daring ruse he sets up with help from an acerbic producer (Alan Arkin) and a veteran makeup man (John Goodman). With Bryan Cranston, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber. Theatrical version; 120 min./Extended edition; 129 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; audio commentary; featurettes. Also includes a mini-poster, 64-page photo book, a map of Tehran, and a replica I.D. badge prop.
