After 101 days, "Avatar" has finally exited the top 10. With "How to Train Your Dragon" and "Alice in Wonderland" taking nearly all of the 3-D screens in the country, "Avatar" saw its ticket sales drop 50% this weekend to an estimated $2 million, pushing it to No. 11 on the box-office charts. That's the biggest decline by far for director James Cameron's 3-D blockbuster since it opened Dec. 18 and a sign of just how important 3-D, which has generated more than 80% of the film's box-office revenue, has been to its $740.

"Frozen" isn't going anywhere. The hit soundtrack to Disney's animated feature film topped the Billboard 200 for the 11th time Wednesday, reflecting sales of 259,000 copies in the week that ended Sunday, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's the album's biggest one-week business yet, wrote Billboard's Keith Caulfield, who attributed the 94% boost over the previous week to Easter shopping, "which tends to lift sales of music that appeals to families and children. " PHOTOS: Upcoming Disney films, spring and beyond In extending its stint at No. 1, "Frozen" also broke the record held by "The Lion King" for the most weeks atop the chart for a soundtrack to an animated movie.

It was a steamy scene that never made it to screen. The pilot for the CW's new drama, "Reign," originally featured a scene where a young handmaiden pleasures herself in an abandoned stairwell. That scene didn't make the final cut, though.  The show takes place in a massive castle and follows the early life of Mary, Queen of Scots in 16th century France. The offending scene happens after the Queen of Scotland (Adelaide Kane) and her ladies-in-waiting secretly spy on the "bedding ceremony" of a just-married couple.

Talking toys have been around since at least 1960, when pull-the-string Chatty Cathy debuted. But Teddy Ruxpin, a cuddly teddy bear that hit stores in late 1985, marked a technological leap forward. Created by then-Granada Hills resident Ken Forsse, the talking Teddy moved his mouth in sync, making him seem much more lifelike. The effect was both delightful and a bit creepy, and kids loved him. "1986 and 1987 were insane; you could hardly find Teddy Ruxpin in stores, it was so popular," said toy expert Jim Silver.

Defending champion Spain was eliminated from the Davis Cup on Saturday when Slovakia took an insurmountable 3-0 following a doubles victory at Bratislava, Slovakia. Karol Beck and Michal Mertinak beat Albert Costa and Rafael Nadal, 7-6 (3), 6-4, 7-6 (8), as Slovakia got to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2000. Spain, which beat the United States to win its second Davis Cup three months ago, was without three top players -- Carlos Moya, Tommy Robredo and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson weren't on the grounds, and then Bubba Watson exited in mid-sneeze with allergies. Short eight Masters green jackets and losing substantial star power by the hole, the Arnold Palmer Invitational needed a break. Adam Scott provided it Thursday with a resounding round of 62 to tie a course record, although the lowest score in 30 years at Bay Hill was in jeopardy of never happening, either. In keeping with the tournament theme, a sickly Scott also considered pulling out just before the event, not that he'd miss it all that much.

At Style Fashion Week on Monday night, Michael Costello closed out the second slate of group runway shows with a twofer of sorts -- first presenting his ready-to-wear MT Costello collection, then dimming the lights and swapping out the sign at the top of the catwalk before presenting his made-to-order Michael Costello collection. Usually we'd poke fun at that kind flourish of stagecraft -- but for two things. First, it meant we got a chance to see a lot more of Costello's handiwork.

The latest Liam Neeson thriller and a New Testament retelling could finally knock over "The Lego Movie" during Oscar weekend as the 3-D animated hit continues to build on its big box office take.  "Lego Movie," the irreverent comedy from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, should generate an additional $20 million in ticket sales Friday through Sunday in the U.S. and Canada, which would push it past the $200-million mark domestically. "Lego" has dominated the multiplex over the last three weekends, but the No. 1 box office spot looks like a tossup with "Non-Stop" and "Son of God" poised for solid openings, according to people who have seen pre-release audience surveys.  PHOTOS: Box office top 10 of 2013 | Biggest flops of 2013 "Non-Stop" stars Neeson as a federal air marshal in a race against time to save an airliner on a transatlantic flight.

They started near high noon, two gunslingers and a sniper. They were ready, willing and hoping to be able to bring the enemy to its knees, the enemy being the hallowed and harrowing Riviera Country Club. They were Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Jim Furyk, a threesome of big-name golfers and a popular choice for the galleries on the second day of the Northern Trust Open. The attraction was obvious. Two of the players, Rose and Furyk, were major winners, each having a U.S. Open title in their resume.

John Force added another chapter to his legendary career Sunday as the 64-year-old drag racer won the funny car race at the season-opening NHRA Winternationals in Pomona. Force, who earned a record 16th funny car championship last year, knocked out another former champion, Matt Hagan, in the final round at Auto Club Raceway. In doing so, Force set another record. His final-round run was 3.965 seconds, a new national low, at 323.58 mph in the 1,000-foot race. It was the 139th victory for Force, who owns the Yorba Linda-based team that includes his daughter Courtney and son-in-law Robert Hight in funny cars, and daughter Brittany in the sport's other 300-mph class called top fuel.

When Mike Magee walked into StubHub Center on Friday morning, the return inspired memories and goose bumps. "This stadium [is] a place that had a pretty special place in my heart," said Magee, a fan favorite during his five seasons with the Galaxy. It could become even more special if Magee gets an opportunity to play Saturday afternoon before a sold-out crowd in the U.S. national team's exhibition with South Korea. Major League Soccer's reigning most valuable player, Magee went nine years between call-ups to a national team camp.

A lot of my friends who are hockey fans would love to introduce new people to the game, but one issue gets in the way: cost. One thing you want to do when bringing newcomers to their first game is get them good seats. At a Kings or Ducks game, that can run you more than $200 per ticket, not an easy buy in this economy. There is a local alternative, however, that I experienced Saturday night. Out in Ontario, you can see some great hockey at a reasonable price, and you might see some future Kings stars while you are at it. The Ontario Reign are a minor-league hockey team that plays its home games at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
