I don’t think it’s a hard and fast rule, though - like, Bamboozled came under a year after Do the Right Thing. The Fassbinders definitely have appeared multiple times over the course of a year. I would think it’s unlikely they’ll pop up immediately, but it’s not crazy to think they could still show up this year.

Amores Perros isn’t a WCP title - it’s still with Lionsgate.

Criterion has a distinct pattern of twinning releases that’s been going on for a while now—e.g., Bruno Dumont, Bette Davis, Sidney Lumet.
I fully expect that with the two Jarmusch films, Coffee and Cigarettes and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai later this year perhaps

Based on Bressonaire’s clues:

Company original cast album
Miracle at Morgan Creek
The Irishman

Boxset-ish upgrade either
me Arkadin or the Dreyer set

And maybe a studio canal or two

edit: what I had written down (in a word doc with all the silly eclipse guesses I've been making) to guess before Bressonaire said anything.

Summertime
Early Summer
Company original cast album
utamaro and his five women
Parasite & Memories of Murder
Michel Devile eclipse

SHIT! Well, I suppose now we're even. Maybe if we both guess it next month, it'll happen? (I keep staring longingly at my DVD copy in hope...)

Weirdly, the second half and only the second half of that Denis doc on Rivette is on the Criterion channel right now. Which makes me wonder if there's some sort of weird rights issue with the first half?

Didn't realize the second half was on the channel actually! But I have yet to see it. The first half is on YouTube, but skipping through it, it doesn't seem like there should be any rights issue unless that excerpt from Out 1 isn't ok for some reason. I suggested the doc because it would be the main reason I'd double dip. But Criterion's apparent tendency to squeeze everything onto one disc does not sound so promising.
