If there is one movie on the autumn schedule that everyone is talking about then it is Argo.

The movie marks the return of Ben Affleck to the director's chair - he also stars in the movie - for the first time since he received critical acclaim for The Town.

And it looks like more acclaim is on the way for the actor turned filmmaker as Argo is already being tipped as a major contender this award's season.

We have some new clips from the movie for you to enjoy ahead of the release next month:

Yes 2013 could see Affleck get his hands on another Oscar as he could well be in the running for Best Picture and Best Director - could it really be his time.

The movie is based on a true story and was inspired by an an article by Joshuah Bearman.

Chris Terrio has penned the screenplay while Grant Heslov and George Clooney have their producing hats on for this project.

Affleck leads an all star cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, John Goodman and Scoot McNairy.

On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage.

But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador.

Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA "exfiltration" specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country.

Argo is released 7th November
