As technology changes and we become more and more a part of the world of technology, the never ending question of “are films taking over books?” is at the back of our minds. You might hear people saying they would prefer to wait for the film, or they don’t have time to read a book, and would rather watch the film.

Films like Avatar pushed 3D films into the limelight, beginning a successful use of the technology for many years to come.

Christmas has come around once again, and it’s time to look back on the year and see what 2016 has brought us in the way of films – here’s a hint, it was quite a successful year.
It seems like every year there’s something new that pushes us one – or even two – steps further away from the Cine format; the 4K revolution is here in full force and there’s even talks of higher quality media coming in the near future, too!
So, without further ado – what has 2016 done for us?
