...no? The last monthly announcements to include a box was for July, and there's already the biggest release ever in December. I definitely am under the belief it'll happen due to the Chungking/Playtime situation but there's no reason to assume they'd put a relatively high profile release in the dog days of December.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. Chungking is one of my favorite films and I loved 2046, but for me the former succeeds because of its lovelorn youthfulness capturing a moment in these characters' lives that can't last. The film is like a pop song, fleeting but poignant. I'll certainly see this sequel if it ever completes production but Wong's always irked me a little in his desire to revisit past works throughout his oeuvre rather than letting well enough alone.
