Agro, which comes out Oct. 12, is loosely based on a real hostage crisis during the Iranian Revolution in 1979, when militants held 52 Americans inside the U.S. embassy in Tehran. The film details the tale of six hostages fleeing and hiding in a Canadian ambassador's residence and Mendez's plan to safely rescue them.

Affleck plays CIA specialist Tony Mendez, who plots to help six Americans escape Iran.
