    It depends on your connection and DL speed

    Okay. It's pretty fast. Will it probably take several hours?

    Agree with above, The time will completely hinge on your download speed.
    What is your speed?

    I'm not sure what the speeds from apple servers are, I've never bought any movies from them.

    You shouldn't have much of an issue.

    If its not bigger than 1.3GB's and your speed is at least 300kb/s then you'll be good.

    It took about 25 minutes. Glad I got my first movie on my iPad
