Safe House, directed by Daniel Espinosa, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Believing The Lie by Elizabeth George was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Lyons Den. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes or Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
