Freelancers, directed by Jessy Terrero, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while The Communist by Paul Kengor was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Damien's Quest. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Angry Birds Star Wars or The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles.
