The storied Venice Film Festival is updating its awards lineup by offering a prize for the best 3D movie of the year. Organizers said in a statement Saturday that nine films will compete for the new award at the festival's 66th edition on Sept. 2-12.

The movies include blockbusters "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs," "Monsters vs. Aliens" and "Up."

Organizers last week announced that 23 films would be vying for the festival's top award, the Golden Lion.

The entries are all world premieres and include Michael Moore's documentary on the financial crisis, called "Capitalism: A Love Story," and former Gucci designer Tom Ford's directorial debut, "A Single Man," starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.
