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 includes three brand new special features: Ben Affleck's Balancing Act and Argo Declassified featurettes; 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.”

Argo was one of the most honored and best reviewed movies of 2012. In addition to the Oscar® presented to producers Grant Heslov, Affleck and George Clooney for Best Picture, Argo won the Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Picture. The film earned two additional Oscars® – for Best Achievement in Film Editing and for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay – and was nominated for an additional four (Best Supporting Actor for Alan Arkin; Best Original Score, Best Achievement in Sound Editing; Best Achievement in Sound Mixing)

Affleck also stars in the film, leading an ensemble cast, which won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance. Arkin was recognized with Oscar®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA Award, Critics’ Choice and SAG Award® nominations for his performance. Argo also stars Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Scoot McNairy, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler and Chris Messina.

Screenwriter Chris Terrio won Oscar® and Writers Guild of America awards for his screenplay, based on a selection from The Master of Disguise by Antonio J. Mendez and the Wired Magazine article “The Great Escape” by Joshuah Bearman.
