Sparkle, directed by Salim Akil, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Fifty Shades Freed by E L James was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Go Public: A Documentary Film Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Angry Birds Space or ARC Squadron.
