    I had the same question when I bought my first HD. You are downloading three things.

    1. Movie in HD
    2. Movie in SD
    3. Movie extras

    This is normal and in iTunes the HD and SD movie versions will combine into one line item with the extras associate to it so the whole movie is one object per se. You get SD and HD copies so that when you sync to an HD compatible device you see it in HD and when you sync with and SD only device you get SD. The appropriate format for the appropriate device. Makes sense in the end.

    When I download T2 I had a 4gb HD file, a 1.5ish gb SD file and half gb extras file. This all took some time to download.
