Movie rentals to be available through Facebook

'The Dark Knight Returns' to be first release under new scheme

Warner Brothers are set to trial a new scheme whereby their films will be available to rent via Facebook.

The first title available through the pilot scheme will be The Dark Knight Returns, which is currently Number Seven in the list of highest-grossing films of all time.

The new scheme will see the movie available to rent for 30 Facebook credits ($3), and available for a 48-hour window. No plans for a UK version of the scheme have been announced yet.

The Batman sequel’s Facebook page, Facebook.com/the-dark-knight-returns-batman, currently boasts 3.9million ‘likes’.
