Paramount Studios announced Tuesday that the first three Mission: Impossible films can now be streamed directly from Facebook.

Facebook debuted its movie streaming service in March, when it teamed up with Warner Bros. to offer the critically-acclaimed The Dark Knight. Like The Dark Knight and other movies available for rental on Facebook, each of the Mission: Impossible films will cost 30 Facebook credits, or $3 to watch.

The movies are available on the Facebook fan page for the upcoming fourth Mission: Impossible--Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

Once you rent a movie, you must watch it within 48 hours. During this time you are allowed to pause the movie, leave Facebook, and resume the movie when you log back in. You can also view the movie in full-screen mode.

Paramount is also offering a Facebook game, called (rather unimaginatively) Mission: Impossible the Game. The first 200 players to locate a hidden Easter Egg in the game will receive a code that will let them rent one of the three Mission: Impossible movies for free.

The first 200 players to locate a hidden Easter Egg in the game will receive a code for a rental of one of movies on the fan page.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol opens in theaters and IMAX on December 21.
