Boldly Shoot Scenes With Action Movie FX's New 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Effects
"Star Trek Into Darkness," which opens in theaters on May 17, already has Star Trek App for its official iOS app. Nevertheless, the upcoming sequel to the 2009 "Star Trek" film reboot is now featured in the popular cinematic special effects app Action Movie FX. Of course, once you realize that the production companies behind the film and the app are one and the same, the cross-promotion suddenly seems natural. That one and the same company, by the way, is Bad Robot. Bad Robot's Action Movie FX has just received a new update. And it brings five FX that include models and assets straight from "Star Trek Into Darkness." The five "Star Trek Into Darkness" special FX are Phaser Fight, Enterprise Flyby, Photon Torpedoes, Transporter, and Warp. The first three of these are free to unlock, while the latter two are part of the premium Star Trek FX pack, unlockable via a $0.99 in-app purchase.

To honor the real heroes who boldly answered the call to service after 9/11, Bad Robot, in cooperation with CBS and Paramount, will donate 100% of the proceeds from this FX pack to The Mission Continues.Click here to learn more about The Mission Continues. The latest update to Action Movie FX also includes HD textures for all previously purchased FX. Moreover, it adds resize and placement controls, which are previously available on iPad only, to the app's iPhone edition. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Action Movie FX is available now in the App Store for free. Action Movie FX was honored by Apple, no less, as the iPhone App of the Year for its App Store Best of 2012 year-ender. Furthermore, the app was featured by Apple in its “Hollywood” iPad TV ad, which aired during this year's Oscars telecast. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
