Because you don't already spend too much time on Facebook (hey, those cartoon farm fields don't till themselves), now Burbank-based Warner Bros. has a way for you to access and rent some of their films via the social networking service, says the AP.

The service is in its testing mode, and launched today with an offer for their film "The Dark Knight." (Or, as the AP calls it, "The Dark Night.") If you "like" the movie on its official FB page, you can rent it right there for $3 or 30 Facebook credits*.

If you opt to rent, you can access the film for 48 hours.

*Incidentally, if those virtual FB credits are burning a hole in your virtual pocket, you can also build an imaginary casino and lord over more imaginary money, you can hit the "Celebrity Baby Jackpot," donate to a few causes, play with Zombies, and play a ton of quizzes. Yikes.
