Warner Bros. has confirmed that director Ben Affleck has changed the ending to Argo since it screened at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month.

The film, in theaters Oct. 12,  is based on the real-life rescue of six U.S. citizens who found refuge at the home of Canadian ambassador, Ken Taylor, during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. The film has been generating plenty of Oscar chatter and critical love. (EW’s Lisa Schwarzbaum writes that it “toggles deftly between scenes of almost unbearable, honestly earned tension and controlled movie-world chaos with sensitivity and a sure touch, building to a thrilling climax. »
