Abrams' and his company, Bad Robot Interactive, which produces super special effects box office hits like Mission Impossible 3 and Super 8.

The app is available for iPhones at the Apple App Store. Shoot at least five seconds of still video. Then choose from a variety of dramatic effects to overlay onto your video. The free app includes three effects – missile attack, car smash, and demolition rock. And you can purchase additional effects, like chopper down or add tornado, for 99 cents a pair.

The best part? You can share your action flick with friends via email or on Facebook!
