It's a long way from the comforts of Burbank to the wilds of the remote Ivory Coast in Africa, and Don Hahn, executive producer of Disneynature's new film, “Chimpanzee,” laughs at the comparison. “Luckily for me, I got to stay home and sit in warm edit suites right here in Burbank looking at this amazing footage our filmmakers shot,” says the congenial producer. It wasn't that he preferred to be an armchair traveler, it's also a matter of practicality. “Chimpanzee” follows the story of an amazing and very lucky infant chimpanzee named Oscar and his family group.

"Mickey, make me a combo, will ya?" yells Coney Dog owner Mike Binder at a grill cook from his table midway across his bustling West Hollywood restaurant. Then he flashes a broad grin. "I've been waiting my whole life to have a restaurant, just so I could do that. " The combo soon comes out. It's a deluxe Coney dog nestled inside a Detroit loose burger (which is crumbled ground beef as opposed to a patty) in a freshly steamed bun, smothered with chili. "That's the Rolls-Royce of hot dogs, right there," says Binder, who is better known as a comedian and director but whose passion for Detroit-style dogs has consumed him for the last year.

"The Lion King" is proving to be far more ferocious than Hollywood imagined. A 3-D version of the classic 1994 animated film claimed the No. 1 spot at the box office for a second consecutive weekend, beating out four new films. Ticket sales for the re-release dropped only 27% this weekend to $22.1 million, bringing the movie's domestic tally to $61.7 million, according to an estimate from distributor Walt Disney Pictures. "Moneyball," a baseball drama with Brad Pitt, grossed a respectable $20.6 million, just barely edging out another family film at the box office.

"The Lion King" reigned supreme at the box office this weekend, nearly two decades after the classic animated movie was first released in theaters. A 3-D version of the 1994 family film began its limited, two-week engagement this weekend and collected a surprisingly strong $29.3 million domestically, according to an estimate from Walt Disney Pictures.  Also opening this weekend was "Drive," a violent crime drama starring Ryan Gosling, which started off with a decent $11 million in ticket sales.

Walt Disney 's 1994 animated blockbuster "The Lion King" certainly hasn't been an endangered species for the studio. Not with an international gross of $788.2 million. Though it hasn't been out on DVD or VHS since 2004, Disney reports it is the most successful title in home entertainment history. The film has also spawned two straight-to-video sequels and a TV series. And the Broadway musical version has played more than 5,000 performances as of this week and won six Tony Awards including best musical.

I now share more than just pasty skin and gangly posture with the British royal family. I share an anniversary. And if I could suggest one place for William to take Kate on their honeymoon, it would be the picturesque Iberian town where I had the most profound bottle of wine I've ever had in my life — a taste still on my lips to this day. Evora rests in the heart of the arid southern plains of Portugal — a two-hour drive from Lisbon, a...

TARZANA — An hour after his victory in the cage, Alberto Crane took a break from an intense night of action at King of the Cage's Turning Point card and realized something. "We're creating something special here," said the mixed-martial-arts fighter, a Glendale resident. The 600-plus fans at the Braemar Country Club saw something special Sunday night in not only Crane and his stable of fighters, but also in the professional debut of female fighter Ronda Rousey.

LA CRESCENTA — The game clock kept ticking for about a minute while the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team stood on their sun-splashed field stunned that their season had concluded in a most unexpected way. It came not long after a defensive breakdown led to the Falcons' 2-1 overtime loss to visiting Martin Luther King in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match on Thursday afternoon. The Falcons, who won their third Pacific League championship in a row, squandered a 1-0 lead in the second half and couldn't stop the Wolves' late surge.

GLENDALE — With a quick score, a whole lot of defense and a little help from Westridge School, the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team made history on Tuesday afternoon at Chadwick High. The Rebels bested the host Dolphins, 1-0, on the strength of a Kaelin King score to win their first-ever outright Prep League championship and, in the process, win their first repeat title after taking home a share of the crown last season. "The girls accomplished something big, I think," said Rebels Coach Esteban Chavez.
