With all the controversy created from the 'announcement' that Movie 10 would be coming to theaters in the United States, Pokemon.com's mailbag section has set the record straight.

Q: Will Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai be shown in theaters?
A: This may be a disappointment, but despite what you may have heard, Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai will not have a theatrical release - it will premiere on Cartoon Network and then be released on DVD

It seems that Cartoon Network accidentally said theater instead of DVD. For the past few years, the movies have aired on TV first and then released on DVD a few weeks later. Once again Movie 10 seems to fit this release pattern.
