    Crowds trying to go through the main entrance to the European Film Market were diverted through a back entrance this afternoon in Berlin in anticipation of the arrival of Germany's new Chancellor, Angela Merkel. No doubt giving an official push to the market, which more than doubled in size this year, Merkel (center) visited various booths in the large venue. Merkel is seen here exiting the German films section at the market with Berlin International Film Festival head Dieter Kosslick and Beki Probst, the head of the European Film Market.

    One More Press Day for "Pluto"

    "Breakfast on Pluto" star Cillian Murphy thought he had finished doing press for the film, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for best actor.

Murphy, pictured here with the film's producer Alan Moloney, hung out with transvestites while preparing for the role of Kitten in the film and said their needs were pretty basic: To be loved, and to look pretty.

    Marilyn Manson's "Phantasmagoric" Visit

    Goth rocker Marilyn Manson was almost in his full regalia Sunday in Berlin for a press announcement of his new biopic project "Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll," which he will direct and star in this coming summer. Manson, pictured here with model Lily Cole who will also star in the film, said he relates to the troubled "Alice in Wonderland" author's life. Manson also said film is an important creative passion for him personally. "I feel more of a student of film then music," he said during the press conference, and added that when he makes a record he envisions it "like a film."
