"Wonder Woman" soars at box office with $11 million opening

LOS ANGELES -- "Wonder Woman" isn't just a critical success; the superhero movie is also doing well at the box office. 

Warner Bros. on Friday said the pic drew in an estimated $11 million from Thursday night pre-shows.

Analysts expect the film to bring in more than $90 million across the weekend.

"Wonder Woman's" Thursday night haul is comparable to "Guardians of the Galaxy," which brought in $11.2 million from pre-shows on its way to $94.3 million. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," meanwhile, tallied a $27.7 Thursday night.

Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for "Wonder Woman," which stars Gal Gadot in the title role. It's currently clocking in with a 93 percent fresh ratting from Rotten Tomatoes based on 190 reviews - a much-needed critical win for Warner Bros. and DC.
