The year's first film to widely be considered a lock for Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director, Argo has also earned a rare A+ Cinemascore rating from ticketbuyers who've seen it.

Argo tells the recently declassified true story of six Americans who escaped the 1979 takeover of the US Embassy in Tehran -- by pretending to be filmmakers! Shooting this remarkable tale posed a number of challenges for director Ben Affleck, since not a single frame could be shot in the Iranian capital.

Instead, audiences travel there through the "invisible effects" created with visual effects supervisor Matt Dessero and CG supervisor Michael Sean Foley at Method Los Angeles, whose teams provided compelling illusions that serve as the perfect backdrop for this tale of life and death sleight of hand.
