Warner Bros Adds Five More Movies to Facebook

Posted Tue Mar 29, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The test is expanding with the addition of a few 'Harry Potter' movies, 'Inception,' and more.

Apparently the whole Facebook rental thing has been working out well for Warner Bros. Well enough, at least, that they're expanding the test out to include five more movies. Just like with 'The Dark Knight' you'll be able to rent them directly through Facebook.

The new titles include 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,' 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,' 'Inception', 'Life as we Know it' and 'Yogi Bear.' It's a strong list, and should let Warner know exactly what they can expect from Facebook rentals.

You can find the videos at each movie's official Facebook page, which Warner hopes you already visit regularly. "These titles have substantial followings on Facebook," says digital distribution president Thomas Gewecke. "The Fan Pages for ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Inception’ alone are two of the most popular and active communities on the site."
