I’d guess Days of Being Wild, Fallen Angels, Happy Together, 2046, and then the previously released In the Mood For Love and Chungking Express.

I’m no longer convinced we’ll see a box set and instead see individual releases. But I’d love to be wrong.
The only Blu-ray double dip had been Playtime in the Tati box, so it was an easy assumption to make that Chungking Express in a new 4K master would be boxed up with all the rest of the WKW films that Janus now controls. But, with the Blu-ray double dip of Monterey Pop, and the fact that In the Mood for Love got the 4K remaster first, I think you're right that these are getting individual releases.

But also we've not had a single one of these new releases, which has not been the case. They were probably picked up in relatively close proximity to the Kino Kieslowskis and Hanekes but we've not seen the fruits of these acquisitions at all, which may suggest that they're holding off. I expect Janus will be touring the new restoration of In the Mood for Love first, though, so it may be a bit off either way.

skimming through everyone's guesses, I was reminded Bodies Rest and Motion is supposed to be coming, funny no one seems to be eagerly predicting it. ;)

It's been so long I can't remember; what is the situation with the 15th landing midweek? Announcements tonight or Friday?

That was pretty good.

You guys know a recent Mexican news article said that Japón would be coming out in 3 months, right?

I think it's too soon for Ferris Bueller's Day Off... The Breakfast Club hasn't even been released yet.

I don’t see how they’d have any option other than ‘Show Me Love’ (and maybe with the proper title in smaller print and in Swedish).

Until the End Of the World (my hopeful new release)
Rohmer's Six Moral Tales (my hopeful upgrade)
Grand Budapest Hotel (to coincide with release of Isle of Dogs in March)
at least one Kar Wai--either Days of Being Wild or 2046

I also wouldn't mind seeing more Olivier Assayas acquisitions; Irma Vep would be my first choice.
