The Argo Film had it’s premiere last night at the Odeon in Leicester Square in Central London as part of the ongoing 56th London BFI Film Festival which is in full swing and closes on October 21st.
This drama thriller which is directed by Ben Affleck and also stars you’ve guessed it Ben Affleck. Getting some seriously good reviews from the critics. Further details about the film at the foot of this article. Thought it would be a good idea to get a closer look to see what the fuss is all about.
Bit of a story behind this picture as all pictures normally have, basically it wouldn’t be here if Mr Affleck hadn’t changed his mind, it’s a long story? If you were there at the entrance that night you will know what I’m talking about! Nightmare!!. Keep an eye on this post for a further update on that or on our Tumblr why this picture is so special.
