This is the first time a Warner Bros. Pictures movie has been streamed on a streaming service as soon as it's released in theaters. Warner Bros. has announced that this measure is temporary and is expected to stop streaming after 2021.

They're even trying to lose what they're trying to lose. I'm unaware. Their decision doesn't make sense financially, even investors who have just started working on Wall Street understand the difference between turmoil and dysfunction. '
