Affleck's next movie, "Argo," scheduled for Oct. 12, presents the hardest test yet of his expertise behind the camera, as he steps into a genre -- Middle Eastern conflict -- that has felled any number of skilled filmmakers
Ben Affleck isn't off to a bad start as a movie director.

His directorial debut, 2007's "Gone Baby Gone," received overwhelmingly positive reviews, while 2010's "The Town" earned equally great marks and grossed more than $154 million globally.

Affleck's next movie, "Argo," scheduled for Oct. 12, presents the hardest test yet of his expertise behind the camera, as he steps into a genre -- Middle Eastern conflict -- that has felled any number of skilled filmmakers. 

Based on the true story of an Iranian rescue operation that feels more like "Tropic Thunder" than anything military intelligence could dream up, "Argo" stars Affleck as the architect of the mission. 

Here's a look at the latest trailer, complete with our Trailer Trash commentary:
