Miramax announced today that it has inked a deal with Facebook that allows users of the social media site to buy or rent digital versions of the studio’s films. Miramax’s Facebook app, called The Miramax Experience (it can be found here), will allow people to view selected movie clips and play games. During the beta phase, the App’s VOD feature will make 20 titles available for rent, including Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction and Chicago. Eventually, consumers will be able to buy movies and watch them on any device.

According to the studio, 50 million Facebook users cite a Miramax movie among of their fave films. Miramax hopes to reach 150 million Facebook users within 18 months. More details about the service can be found at miramax.com.
