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

• That thud you heard wasn't a giant falling from a beanstalk, but the box-office fate of "Jack the Giant Slayer." It topped the weekend with $28 million, but that's a "John Carter"-sized disappointment for a movie that cost $195 million to make. [Box Office Mojo]
