    Anton Corbijn Has Only One Film Left? A German-Set Thriller Starring Herbert Grönemeyer

    We'll fully admit it. The way Focus Features were treating Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn's "The American" — last minute press screenings, very limited press for American journalists — we assumed the company had a dud on their hands and were trying to hide it. They might have thought the same as every pundit seemed surprised when the movie landed at #1 in the box office — even above Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" — on the weekend of September 3 (garnering a very respectable $16.1 million long-day weekend total; the film has grossed $53.3 million worldwide so far).

    Eisner's FameTown Will Be Huge

    I am as guilty of wasting time playing Flixster movie games on Facebook as anyone else. And I am forecasting here and now that ex-Disney chief Michael Eisner's bet on the new social game FameTown (Napster's Shawn Fanning brought him into the start-up Diversion) will pay off big-time (as it did with Zynga's FarmVille and Mafia Wars). The FameTown game launches on Facebook November 1 and will reap income from selling virtual goods.
