Fright Night, directed by Craig Gillespie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Brawl Busters or CityVille Hometown.
