Kathleen Kennedy Reveals Why Indiana Jones 4 Didn't Work

  Kathleen Kennedy Reveals Why Indiana Jones 4 Didn't Work Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy reveals why she thinks the maligned Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull didn't quite work.It seemed appropriate indeed that 1989’s Jones entry was titled The Last Crusade, as most thought Spielberg and Ford had retired the character forever. It was a surprise then when the pair elected to return for 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, with Lucas also on-board as a main creative force. Unfortunately, the consensus is that Crystal Skull was a major failure and a black mark on both the Indiana Jones franchise and Spielberg’s legacy.

What do Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos, Jeremy Balasse and Danil Sharov have in common? All of them have suffered horrific skull fractures in their respective fights.

The aforementioned Sharov joined the likes of Santos and Balasse after his kickboxing debut at FKR Pro 1 this past Friday went awry. In the second round of his fight with Danil Kirikov, the Russian was caught with a knee straight to his forehead.

Upon seeing his opponent, Kirikov noticed the damage he caused between the eyes, paused and pointed it out immediately. In response, Sharov reached up and felt his forehead, which was now stamped with quite a dent. But he wanted to continue, and threw one more kick before the referee finally saw what the initial pause was all about.

To program all this, fighter squadrons could end up with coders and data scientists rapidly reprogramming autonomous drone brains between missions.

The ringside physician was requested, and after one look at the dent, told the referee to stop the fight. Kirikov was declared the winner by second-round TKO.

There is no word yet on the condition of Sharov, but it is likely he requires surgery to repair the skull fracture. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can return to the kickboxing ring at some point.

As for Kirikov, he improves to 1-0 as a professional kickboxer. He also dabbled in mixed martial arts, but fell short in his debut against Vyacheslav Starikov at AMC Fight Nights 112 in Russia earlier this year.
