It does, IF you are downloading the movie from Apple's servers. If you've already downloaded the movie to a local device (computer/iPhone/iPad) and you're playing it from that device, then it will not use the Internet.

Yes, it does. As Apple TV does not cache purchases on the device, it uses an internet connection to stream movies to your device.

How much data transfer does beaming a movie from your laptop take (one that is already on the laptop). I have limited broadband date usage per month.
