Could Friday the 13th Be Heading To Facebook?
Warner Brothers is launching the world's first streaming movie offering on Facebook today and what better title to start with than Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. Yes, you read that right, Facebook is getting into the online movie game and here is how it will work. If you “Like” the movie on Facebook, you can choose to rent it for $3 and then watch the movie, comment during it, pause it and more, right on your Facebook page, for 48 hours. In the near future, you’ll also be able to purchase full movies and do the same thing.
So what does this all mean? For starters, you can now watch films and comment on scenes with your friends while still experiencing all of the features provided on your Facebook account. The big thing to watch will be the possibility to watch this on your television in a much bigger picture. But the bigger question remains for us Friday the 13th fans, since Warner Bros. is jumping in on this now, when might we see some of the New Line/ Warner Bros. Friday the 13th titles become available?
Currently, there are no official Facebook pages for any of the New Line films, so they would have to be created. Having a community party watching our beloved Friday the 13th films would indeed be a fun time, but we will have to wait and see how successful these next few months are with films on Facebook!
