Facebook users will be able to purchase and rent titles from the Warner Bros. catalog using Facebook Credits and play, pause and resume the movies through their Facebook account for up to 48 hours from the time of purchase. An initial test offering of The Dark Night to fans who "Liked" said movie on Facebook can now rent the title through the movie's official Facebook page, with additional titles to be made available in the coming months.
