Backstage celebrates the 2012 Toronto Film festival this week. In addition to hotly anticipated flicks like “Anna Karenina” and “The Master,” we share 10 more movies we’re most excited about. But sometimes what happens in Toronto stays in Toronto, so we look back at five performances that elicited plenty of buzz during the festival, but fizzled in release.
And for our cover, rising star Logan Lerman—represented at Toronto with “Writers” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”—talks about becoming a leading man, how he finally decided to turn serious about acting as a career, and how good work begets more good work. For these stories and more, pick up a copy of Backstage on newsstands Thursday. And for more features and news, check Backstage.com throughout the week.
