Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, meanwhile, says the decision for a season 2 for this Star Wars spin off series ultimately rests with the fans. “If there’s huge engagement and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly give that consideration because the fans, they speak to us. And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; it’s answering the why then,’ then we’ll do it. But we’ll see.”
The original Quantum Leap aired for five seasons on NBC from 1989-1993. Scott Bakula starred as Dr. Sam Beckett, who found himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong.

The biggest hurdle of all when it comes to onscreen tattoos has proved to be legal issues, ever since 2011, when S. Victor Whitmill — a tattoo artist who gave Mike Tyson his famous face tattoo — sued Warner Bros. for similar-looking ink on Ed Helms in The Hangover: Part II. The studio settled with Whitmill, and in the decade since, the industry has become extremely strict about signing off on every tattoo that will appear onscreen, whether real or fake. For a production to give clearance, makeup artists and effects studios must come up with either original designs or imagery from the public domain. If an actor’s real tattoo is going to be shown, their personal tattoo artist has to give approval.

Private espionage operative James Weir (Kiefer Sutherland) is in the midst of a battle over the preservation of democracy in a world at odds with misinformation, behavioral manipulation, the surveillance state and the interests that control these extraordinary powers.
Sounds familiar right, I mean, aren’t we all personally finding ourselves at odds with misinformation and the surveillance state everyday? Isn’t that most of the Internet and all of social media is? Hopefully this has more cool-looking spy weapons and sick lasers. Or at the very least, Sutherland taking the Bond approach and drinking chilled cocktails in a sick suit. I could get behind that.

The timelessness of black-and-white is not just about the setting of the film, but the experience of the filmmaking itself. Color dates a film, from the Technicolor look of the mid-century to the muted, gauziness of the 1970s or the steely gray-blues of the late ‘90s. But if you didn’t know the ages of the performers, could you really say when “Raging Bull” or “Good Night and Good Luck” were made?
After 2022’s glut of black-and-white films, the trend will likely subside. New fads will emerge. But black-and-white has proven over the last 50 years that it will never go away. Its cultural associations — with nostalgia and realism, may shift over time, but one thing will never change: It’s just beautiful.
