Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced this week that the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray releases of Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, (500) Days of Summer, and Jennifer's Body will be accompanied by an application for iPhones and computers that will enable viewers to use their iPhone or computer to create a personalized, social and interactive entertainment experience while watching the movie.

The 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.
