We've bid farewell to the Great White North for another year — yup, the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival is officially over. In years past, Oscar winners like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" made their international debuts at TIFF.

Sorry James, but you really shouldn't mess with Captain America. Get More »
UPDATE: Apparently, the ice has melted for James Franco.
