A sinking ship, clashing lightsabers, talking clownfish: Some 2012 movies will look mighty familiar, with added dimension. Studios have converted several of their highest-grossing catalog titles to 3-D and are rereleasing them in theaters.

The list includes James Cameron's Oscar-winning blockbuster weepie, "Titanic." Young Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are due back on the deck of the doomed luxury liner April 6, shortly before the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking. George Lucas will unspool the first "Star Wars" prequel, "Episode I: The Phantom Menace," in 3-D on Feb. 10,

And on the heels of last year's surprise box-office hit "The Lion King 3-D" comes an updated version of the underwater adventure "Finding Nemo," due Sept. 14. A 3-D rerelease of 1991's "Beauty and the Beast" is in theaters.
