Well if i recall correctly it comes with ps. Imageready is something you have to get on your own, but i'm pretty sure it coems with (my copy does). Also don't ask for a dl link to where you can get it, it's not freeware.

I'll summarize what little I know. Like everyone said, Photoshop/Image ready, MS3D or another 3d Modelling program, prolly wouldn't be bad to have a program like Adobe after effects (animation) or Maya (3D Animation). Then you'll need Adobe Premiere to put everything together in video. Honestly, to do what you want, you're going to have to learn the ins and outs of SEVERAL programs. WHy don't you lay out for us what kind of special effects you wanna use and for what purpose in the movie?

Explosions can be done easilly enough, though I don't know exactly what technical process to use. Make an explosion sprite using photoshop and a spriting program. Can make it as realistic and with as many frames as you want. Should be able to overlay it in Premiere or put it on a seperate video layer.
