Does Criterion’s 2015 Teaser Hint at Linklater’s ‘Before’ Trilogy?



Criterion has revealed their latest New Year’s teaser art, hinting at what’s to come in 2015 and the boys at the CriterionCast have offered up several ideas as to what each clue is hinting at, but for me the most interesting is at the very top. We have two suns and a moon… Could this actually be a hint that Richard Linklater‘s Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight are coming to the collection in 2015? The CriterionCast guesses do believe the two suns hint at the first two Before films, but they speculate the moon rising tease hints at Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom… Hmmmmmmmmm.

Other possibilities the CriterionCast gang speculates includes Edward Yang‘s A Brighter Summer Day, Two Days, One Night, Terrence Malick‘s The New World, David Cronenberg‘s The Brood, Speedy, Stanley Kubrick‘s Barry Lyndon, Abel Gance‘s Napoleon, Inside Llewyn Davis, A Master Builder, Terry Gilliam‘s The Fisher King, Carl Theodor Dreyer‘s The Passion of Joan of Arc, Last Exit To Brooklyn, La Vie En Rose, Ramin Bahrani‘s Man Push Cart and A Room With A View.

I’m terrible at these things so thanks goes to the CriterionCast for their efforts. Anything you see that might be hinted at that has yet to be mentioned?
