In this Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 photo, Farhad Azima, Iranian director and screenwriter of the animated film "Battle of the Persian Gulf II" center, gives an interview to the The Associated Press, while a man watches a trailer for the movie, at his office, in Tehran, Iran. The film, that was four years in the making, imagines a devastating response to an American attack on the country’s nuclear program.

FILE-- In this Nov. 3, 2016 file photo, an Iranian demonstrator holds an anti-U.S. placard in a state-organized annual rally in front of the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, marking 37th anniversary of the seizure of the embassy by militant Iranian students. By putting Iran “on notice,” the new U.S. administration is laying the groundwork for a more confrontational approach toward the Islamic Republic. While the U.S. has plenty in the toolbox should it choose to confront Iran more aggressively, Iran has the means to push back too. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi, File)

A U.S. luxury tour company is offering a new destination that’s sure to raise eyebrows: Iran. Those at Abercrombie & Kent say the tour is perfectly timed as Iran is opening up after the nuclear deal with world powers. However, the U.S. State Department has issued strong warnings about Americans traveling to the Islamic Republic as hard-liners have been arresting people with connections to the West.(AP Photo/Vahid Salemi, File)
