Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is on track for a $95M domestic debut and $255M worldwide


The sub-atomic adventure is the largest in Ant-Man’s history, but it could have lower earnings.

The Kang Dynasty is here. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the latest effort by the moneymaking machine of Marvel Studios; however, the newest entry and start of the next phase is not aiming to hit Spider-Man levels of box office gross. Variety is reporting that the Paul Rudd-led franchise is aiming for a $95 million to $100 million debut for its opening weekend domestically and $255 million for the global take.

The Ant-Man franchise has been one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s more humble hits, but it is predicted to claim the number one spot at the box office with ease, overtaking last week’s Magic Mike’s Last Dance. At the international box office, the third movie of the Ant-Man trilogy is expected to make $35 million to $55 million at the China market, which is a big one for Hollywood blockbusters. It will be one of the rare Hollywood films and the second Marvel tentpole after Avengers: Endgame and Spider-man: Far from Home to be playing in Chinese theaters.

While these estimates put the film below other Marvel titles like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ($185 million), Thor: Love and Thunder ($144 million), and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever ($181 million), as historically, the Ant-Man character scores below his Avenger counterparts, this entry is looking to be the biggest of its trilogy with epic elements of other-worldly threats and the introduction of the newest villain, Kang, who is set to be the Thanos of this phase.

Marvel movies are usually in the positive with critics, but Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania currently has them somewhat split with a current 60% on Rottentomatoes. Having to jump-start a new phase while setting up a number of elements is a big undertaking for the film, and critics are taking notice of its task, with one critic saying, “An ant can carry 10-15 times its body weight, yet as the designated kick-off film tasked with setting up the next two-phase, multi-movie/TV arc, ‘Quantumania’ is still being crushed by having to bear way too much of a franchise burden.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania opens in theaters this Friday.

Illustrated newspaper 'StormForge Times' with front page article announcing Kumina partnership

StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced their partnership with Kumina. The Netherlands-based company with over a decade of experience in providing mission-critical IT services will offer StormForge's Kubernetes resource optimization solution Optimize Live.

Together, Kumina and StormForge will provide Kubernetes users with an all-inclusive package comprising managed Kubernetes services and advanced optimization capabilities.

This partnership will help users enhance the performance and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters, reducing costs and freeing up resources to focus on other aspects of their business. Consequently, Kumina's expertise in managing Kubernetes clusters with customized IT solutions will assist users in maximizing the performance of the optimization platform provided by StormForge.

Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:

"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
