Kansas City had an awfully lengthy injury list as Andy Reid took the podium for the first time as the team prepares for Washington.

Reid said tight end Blake Bell’s back tightened up, wide receiver Tyreek Hill has a quad contusion, linebacker Anthony Hitchens has knee inflammation, defensive lineman Chris Jones has a wrist contusion, left guard Joe Thuney has a broken hand and cornerback Charvarius Ward still has a quad strain.

Bell, Hill, Hitchens and Thuney suffered injuries during Sunday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, whereas Jones and Ward missed the game entirely. Ward has now missed three games in a row.

Reid did have some good news after informing the media about the injuries.

“It seems like a long list, but I think when it’s all said and done with, we’ll be able to get guys back here in the next little bit, which is a positive thing,” said Reid.

Despite the hand fracture, Thuney won’t go on injured reserve, per the head coach.

“Probably not right now,” said Reid. “He just did the walkthrough with us, and so, I think it’s just, we give him a little time here for that thing [to] settle down. I think we’ll have a chance to be OK.”

This likely means that the left guard will play through the injury. Reid also detailed when Jones may be back in the lineup.

“Where he feels comfortable where he can play,” said Reid. “That’s literally it — when he feels that he can do his job, then he’ll be back in — but he’s getting better, though, so that’s a plus.”

We already know the Chiefs will be without running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire for Sunday’s game — and at least two additional contests. The initial Chiefs-Football Team injury report will be out midafternoon on Wednesday.

Box Office: ‘Halloween Kills’ Hunting Down $40 Million Debut as ‘The Last Duel’ Eyes Scary Start

fox4kc.com 13 October, 2021 - 03:34pm

From Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, the latest “Halloween” installment is projected to generate $35 million to $40 million in its first three days of release. That would be significantly less than its predecessor, 2018’s “Halloween,” made in its unexpectedly huge $77 million debut. The follow-up film, however, isn’t expected to replicate those results in part because “Halloween Kills” will premiere on Peacock, the NBCUniversal-owned streaming service, on the same day as its theatrical release, which could curb ticket sales.

For some pandemic-era releases, a hybrid rollout on the big screen and on digital platforms has hindered the chance to turn a profit, at least in its theatrical run. In the case of “Halloween Kills,” that may not be as much of a concern. Since the slasher film cost just above $20 million to produce, a start around $40 million would put it on a prime path to profitability. Also, Peacock is relatively newer to the streaming space and has 54 million subscribers — significantly less than its rivals Netflix (209 million), Disney Plus (116 million) and HBO Max (67.5 million) — so it shouldn’t keep as many people staying home to watch. For the studio, the Peacock deal has helped mitigate any risk around a day-and-date debut.

“Halloween Kills” will be available to Peacock Premium at no extra cost to subscribers who already pay $4.99 or $10.99 per month for access to the service. Universal first deployed its day-and-date strategy earlier this year with “The Boss Baby: Family Business.” The studio didn’t report streaming metrics, but it grossed grossed $57 million at the domestic box office and $118 million worldwide, a fraction of the first “Boss Baby” and its $527 million global total.

David Gordon Green returned to direct “Halloween Kills,” having driven the first to positive reviews and box office glory. With $250 million globally, the 2018 film became the highest-grossing installment in the 11-film franchise. The 12th entry has not been received as warmly by critics (it has a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes), though reviews hardly matter to fans of the horror genre. For most slasher film aficionados, shameless jump scares and high body counts are well worth the price of a ticket.

“Halloween Kills” picks up after Laurie Strode (Curtis) seemingly kills her pesky nemesis Michael Myers in a fiery basement. But, the masked murderer is seemingly immortal and somehow frees himself to continue his ritual bloodbath on Halloween. Laurie rallies her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and the town of Haddonfield to rise up against Michael Myers once and for all. There’s already a sequel, “Halloween Ends,” scheduled for Oct. 14, 2022 so we can guess how that mission pans out.

“Halloween Kills” isn’t the only new movie to open this weekend, though it will easily tower over fellow newcomer, Disney and 20th Century’s period drama “The Last Duel.” The long-delayed film is aiming to collect $10 million from 3,000 North American theaters, though some box office experts suggest box office receipts may not hit double digits. While that would be disappointing for a movie starring A-listers like Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising because “The Last Duel” is exactly the kind of movie that hasn’t been thriving at the box office. Older audiences should be the target audience for a film like “The Last Duel,” but in general, moviegoers over the age of 45 have been most reluctant to return to their local multiplex. “The Last Duel” will also face competition from MGM’s James Bond movie “No Time to Die,” which opened last weekend with $55 million and appeals to a similar demographic. The 007 adventure looks to bring in around $25 million in its second outing.

“The Last Duel” could have more resonance at the international box office. It debuts overseas in most major markets this weekend, where the movie is expected to bring in between $10 million to $15 million. The R-rated “The Last Duel,” which clocks in at two hours and 30 minutes, will need on positive reviews and glowing word-of-mouth to help it compete for ticket buyers in what is shaping up to be a busy fall season.

Directed by Ridley Scott, the film centers on actual events that took place in 14th century France and follows Marguerite de Carrouges (Comer), who claims to have been raped by her husband’s best friend and squire Jacques Le Gris (Driver). Her husband, knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon), defends his wife’s honor and challenges Jacques to a trial by combat, resulting in the last legally sanctioned duel in the country’s history. Heavy subject matter, indeed, but “The Last Duel” has been mostly well received by critics, with Variety’s Owen Gleiberman calling it “a lavishly convoluted and, at times, rather interesting medieval soap opera.”
