At most, 6 minutes of footage. At most.
Doesn't Nolan do most of his cutting at the script level though? Think I remember him saying that years ago. I believe it was said the script for TDKR was the equivalent of a 4 hour movie at one point. I believe it. You wonder how it might have turned out if they split it into two films at 2 hours for each film.
