It starts as a free app with a five-minute preview and other extra features and becomes a full movie with an in-app purchase of the movie ($13, $15 respectively, you can choose whether to download or stream). For the movie watcher, the app offers more extras (like a DVD) than what you get in iTunes. And for Warner Bros, using the App Store puts their movies in more countries.
