Criterion Wants to Make a ‘Before Sunrise’ Trilogy Box Set

Criterion Wants to Make a 'Before Sunrise' Trilogy Box Set

Rumors have been bandied about for some time regarding whether or not The Criterion Collection would release Richard Linklater’s complete “Before” trilogy, including “Before Sunrise,” “Before Sunset” and “Before Midnight.”

At a packed IFC party this week in Los Angeles celebrating Linklater’s “Boyhood,” Ethan Hawke told Collider: “Criterion’s trying to get the rights to all three and do a triptych, which is what we wanted. So hopefully that will be soon.” (Interview video below.)

Criterion’s New Year’s teaser art hinted at what’s in store for 2015, and in looking at the drawing (below), with its two suns and moon, suggests that the possibility of the “Before” series hitting shelves in a new transfer could finally be more than just hearsay. The cinephiles at CriterionCast agree that this may be true, while hinting that the moon could, in fact, presage “Moonrise Kingdom.”
