As another movie year comes to a close, it's time to look back at the biggest film-related stories of 2012 and take stock of all the highs and lows. And while there certainly were some major movie highs this year — from acclaimed period pieces to crowd-pleasing blockbusters to surprise comedy hits — frankly, we're more than happy for 2012 to be over.
That's because, as cool as the action was on screen, the headlines being made off-screen were often sad, disappointing or downright terrifying to think about. So let's look back at the year that was — and hope that 2013 is a whole hell of a lot more fun. Get More »

While Hollywood mourns the death of director Tony Scott, those hit hardest are his immediate family, including his wife Donna Wilson Scott, their two sons, and. perhaps most of all, his brother and business partner, Ridley Scott.
The elder Scott was in the middle of shooting his latest film "The Counselor" for 20th Century Fox when he was given the news of his younger brother's suicide, and now Variety reports that shooting on the picture has been suspended for at least the rest of the week. Get More »
Tony Scott (1944-2012) got started in show biz by calling the shots on commercials before making his feature directorial debut in 1983 with the pop art vampire drama, "The Hunger," starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie and Susan Sarandon. Three years later he would make a little movie called "Top Gun" and the rest is Hollywood history.

Not surprisingly, screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (who happens to be in the process of directing "One Shot," starring Mr. Cruise) set the record straight, declaring, "There is no 'Top Gun 2' in which Maverick is not the starring role." Get More »
Tony Scott's "Top Gun" became the highest grossing film of 1986, made a mega-star out of Tom Cruise, had a popular soundtrack that ruled the airwaves, and epitomized the gung-ho patriotism of the Reagan era like no other movie.
A lot has changed in the world and with the stars of "Top Gun" in the 25 years since it thundered into theaters, and that is exactly why it's worth revisiting this macho-filled time capsule of '80s nostalgia now for its Blu-ray debut.
Cruise plays Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a hotshot naval aviator with difficulty following the rules, who is sent to attend the Top Gun school at NAS Miramar near San Diego with Radar Intercept Officer Nick "Goose" Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards). Get More »
