So you may have heard that Argo was awarded Best Picture honors by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last night. And if you missed this absorbing thriller from Ben Affleck in theaters, well the good news is that it is already available on the home market. In the days counting down to the Academy Awards, Warner Bros. released the film as a DVD & BD combo pack release.
Scott Sawitz talked about its greatness in both his theatrical review and this week’s Monday Morning Critic column.
Once I get a good look at the extras, we’ll give you our opinions on the Blu-ray release itself. However, I will say that besides including an extended cut of the film, the Blu-ray boasts some informative behind-the-scenes featurettes as well as short docs on the classified rescue.
In the mean time feel free to click on any of the links below and order Argo today!
