Scream VI Box Office: Strong Thursday previews point towards a record opening


Scream 6 enjoyed a strong opening night at box office, which points towards a franchise-best weekend for the series.

I’ve said this once and I’ll repeat it again: in an era when there are no certain things at the box-office, horror can always be relied on to put butts into seats. For evidence of this, look at the box office receipts for Barbarian, The Black Phone, Smile, M3GAN, and now, Scream VI. After a strong $5.7million in previews on Thursday night, the series is set for a record-breaking opening weekend. According to Deadline (and our box office predictions), the movie will open to $35-40million, which would be a record for a franchise. The 2000 divisive Scream310 opened to $34.7 million. Last year’s Scream had a strong $30 million opening and likely would have done much better had we hadn’t been in the middle of the Omicron surge (here in Montreal theaters were closed – I only finally saw the film on an airplane).

The Adam Driver actioner 65 had a less impressive opening night, only grossing $1.225 million, which means it may not crack single digits this weekend. The Creed II10 should take second place at the box-office. It made $3 million yesterday, and has already crossed $74 million domestically. It is expected to break $100 million this weekend. Cocaine bear will likely surpass the $50 million mark this weekend, while Ant Man and the Wasp Quantumania inch closer to what should be around $200 million.

It’s worth mentioning that ScreamVI10 is still a great movie, despite being the sixth installment in a franchise. Let us know in the comments!

I think my hometown of Montreal was a poor substitute for New York. Let us know in the comments!

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."
