Post work is a lot of different things(Sound, editing, looping). So yeah, they don't have a gun on their heads to finish but I don't think they're going to wait til the last minute on effects just because they have time to twiddle their thumbs.
Effects houses have to get their next jobs lined up as well.
Besides. Nolans are notorious liars. lol
