Jason Kilar, the CEO of WarnerMedia, tweeted out additional context on the big news.
They go on to say that there were many things that factor into a decision like this. The Pandemic, belief in the theatrical experience, their mission to be strong supportive partners with the production team and most importantly the fans.

“…we believe this decision will bring several benefits. The first and most important benefit is to the fans in the form of unprecedented choice from day one. The second benefit is to the exhibitors, providing an eagerly anticipated movie at a much-needed time while they take precautions in their operations.
