SIENNA MILLER dismissed rumors that she's been flirting with divorcing Brad Pitt.

KATIE HOLMES & JAMIE FOXX  are finally ready to “go public” with their romance.

WHY IS THIS SATURDAY DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER DAYS?  Because ABC has its annual showing of The Ten Commandments, a grand spectacle featuring acting from Edward G. Robinson and Anne Baxter that is so over-the-top that Yul Brynner starts to look good by comparison.  And while Robinson's Dathan never actually spoke the line "Where's your Messiah now?" in the movie, it  -- like "Play It Again, Sam" (not spoken in Casablanca) -- has become part of a part of our culture. The line actually comes from Billy Crystal, originally a bit from the Oscars, iirc. It later turned up o­n The Simpsons, with Chief Wiggum playing Dathan to Ned Flanders' Moses.

EELS can sense magnetic fields and may use this ability to navigate thousands of miles through the Atlantic Ocean.

PAUL O'NEILL, the founder of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, a progressive metal band known for spectacular holiday concerts filled with theatrics, lasers and pyrotechnics, was found dead in his hotel room in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday. He was 61. The band said in a statement that Mr. O’Neill died from an unspecified “chronic illness.”

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Boss Baby repeats atop the chart with another 26.3MM on a steep-for-animation 48 percent drop (though it's not unprecedented for Dreamworks animation).  Then again, it faced still-stiff competition from Beauty and the Beast, which placed with 25MM on a 45 percent drop.  Indeed, it also faced weaker competition from Smurfs: The Lost Village, which took in 14MM domestic against a 60MM production budget.  But the blue things took in another 42MM in foreign markets, and the first two were so profitable, it's hard to see even a flop bothering the stuido, though this could easily still make a profit in theaters before reaching the home market.  The remake of Going In Style debuted in fourth with 12.6MMagainst a 25MM budget, which may be just fine, insofar as senior-oriented comedies from Grumpy Old Men to Last Vegas have been pretty leggy counter-programming to the tentpoles and blockbusters.  Ghost In The Shell rounds out the Top 5 with 7.4MM on a steep 63 percent drop, despite a lack of competition before the arrival of The Fate of the Furious next weekend.  It doesn't look like foreign markets will save ScarJo either, unless China and Japan come in yuge for it.
