It was only 24 hours ago that I was giving you all the latest goods from J.J. Abrams' SUPER 8 and now here I am with even more news on the highly anticipated sci-fi epic.

So what could I possibly have for you guys today? How about a wicked awesome iPhone app and a couple new stills?! Would that be something you might be interested in? Hint: Say yes! Now the stills can be found by scrolling directly above and below, nothing worth writing home about but still some pretty solid shots. As for the iPhone app, that's going to take a bit of explaining. Check it:

The app, which is distributed by Paramount Digital Entertainment and was created by app-development newcomer QMx Interactive and Bad Robot Interactive, a division of Bad Robot Productions, allows users to create vintage movies on their Apple mobile devices. Super 8 comes with seven photorealistic lenses sporting such effects as infrared, chromatic and x-ray. Users can overlay additional filter effects like light leaks and vignettes and "age" their film with a random scratch-and-dirt filter. There's even a frame-shake effect to top off the old-school feel of Super 8-made movies.

Users can collect their shots and arrange or delete them to get that perfect narrative, and send their masterpiece off to be developed (no mailbox required: developing film happens entirely within the app). Once the movie is complete, users are transported to the Super 8 projector room, where pulling down the screen and pressing "Play" on the projector will start their screening. Movies can be shared via e-mail or through social media sites via the iOS's gallery.

Pretty intense stuff right?? The SUPER 8 app is getting rave reviews from iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users alike from around the world! It's built up a solid five-star rating within hours of it's release and has both fans and reviewers calling it the best movie tie-in app of all time. Pretty damn impressive.

So what're you waiting for?! Head on over to the ITunes Store now to get that shite! And don't forget to head on over to the S8editingroom.com when your finished to play back your masterpiece. You may find yourself stumbling upon some missing footage from the SUPER 8 editing room film, which should come together to give us all a look at a brand new clip!

In the summer of 1979, where a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

Pretty stacked stuff. SUPER 8 hits theaters everywhere on June 10th with a cast that includes Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Zach Mills, Katie Lowes, Marco Sanchez and Ryan Lee.

Extra Tidbit: Amanda Michalka (above) actually has a twin sister named Alyson.
