FILE - This July 20, 2012 file photo shows a wide awake crowd watching the premier of "The Dark Knight Rises" inside the Liberty Science Center IMAX theater in Jersey City, N.J. Movie napping is a precarious affair and almost certainly as old as cinema itself. It strikes the overtired and the well-rested, film nuts and occasional theatergoers. Any which way, cinematic snoozing seems near epidemic proportions this awards season with buzz plus ZZZs for "Lincoln," the 157-minute sung "Les Miserables," the 169-minute "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and others cited as good for a snore.
