Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• A happy 70th birthday to two icons: Paul McCartney and Roger Ebert. Weird coincidence, huh? [Time, Moviefone]

• Both the jukebox musical "Rock of Ages" and the Adam Sandler crapfest "That's My Boy" both tanked at the weekend box office, as "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" took first place again. [Box Office Mojo]

• One way to mark the death Sunday of Rodney King, the Los Angeles man whose beating by police sparked riots and a still-unresolved national discussion about race: Rent Spike Lee's "Malcolm X," which leads with the video of that beating. [KPCC]
