Here's what's being talked about today in pop culture:

• Katie Holmes' divorce from Tom Cruise is beginning to cast a spotlight on the inner workings of the Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a prominent figure. [The Daily Beast, The Hollywood Reporter]

• "The Amazing Spider-Man" scored $35 million on Tuesday, and is tracking toward a massive six-day weekend of around $150 million. [Entertainment Weekly]

• A Jimi Hendrix biopic, now being filmed in Ireland and starring Andre Benjamin (a k a Andre 3000), will not be using Hendrix's music because the guitarist's family did not approve the rights.
