FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Fox's Dark Phoenix took in $5 million from Thursday evening previews, which began last night at 7PM along with select Fan Events starting at 6pm in IMAX. The performance matches the $5 million in previews for War for the Planet of the Apes, which went on to debut with $56 million, but is well behind the $8.2 million in previews for X-Men: Apocalypse, which debuted with $65.7 million three years ago.
