Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian on Blu-rayThe application, called FoxPop, runs on iPhones (as well as presumably iPod Touches) and computers, listens to the movie while it's playing and syncs in seconds to an exact moment in a movie, using "real-time audio recognition technology." As events occur, facts and trivia automatically pop up (FoxPop, get it?) on the iPhone or computer, offering viewers new information each time they watch a movie. The application will provide information about the current scene, including info about an actor on the screen, a location, or a song that is playing.

Additional application features include the ability for fans to share and chat with friends while watching the movie via social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

The first home video release to use the technology will be Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian when it appears on Two-Disc Monkey Mischief DVD Pack and 3-Disc Blu-ray on December 1, 2009.

(500) Days of Summer will be released on December 22, 2009 and Jennifer's Body is due on December 29, 2009.
