Brad Bird Talks Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol: IMAX vs. 3-D, Animation vs. Live Action, Trailer

In advance of the release of "Mission: Impossible-- Ghost Protocol," the first new M:I movie in five years, Paramount is drumming up stateside fan interest by making the previous three "Mission: Impossible" features available to rent and stream on Facebook, via Facebook credits.

"Mission" fans can click the "Rent Movies" link on the "Mission: Impossible" Facebook Page to select any of three PG-13 "Mission: Impossible" movie apps to rent and watch individually via 30 Facebook Credits ($2.99), viewable for up to 48 hours. They can watch in full screen, pause, leave Facebook, and resume playing when they log back in. 

The studio is also promoting its "social spy game" "Mission: Impossible the Game."
