In this Feb. 6, 2013 photo, Taiwanese movie goers sit in a nearly empty theater to watch Oscar nominated "Zero Dark Thirty" as the Chinese New Year nears in Taipei, Taiwan. Tens of millions of film fanatics are entering theaters around Asia during the long Lunar New Year holiday, but Hollywood canât count on them to boost the box office for its mostly serious Oscar nominees. Even with the Academy Awards buzz at a peak barely two weeks before the ceremony, patrons are opting for lighter fare. (AP Photo/Wally Santana)
