Out in theaters for a month and Aquaman has just reached an important milestone at the domestic box office.

The DC Extended Universe film has seen a slight boost from the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, earning over $10 million domestically putting the film over the $300 million mark with its earnings in the United States and on track to earn $305 million by the end of tomorrow.

Already the second highest earning adaptation of a DC Comics property, the film had passed Man of Steel's lifetime domestic box office this past week, making it the fourth highest earning DCEU film domestically to date. The top spot is held by Wonder Woman, which earned $412.5 million in 2017, while Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earned $330.3 million and Suicide Squad earned $325.1 million in 2016.

While Aquaman is not expected to top Suicide Squad, its impressive overseas box office puts it on track to rival The Dark Knight Rises $1.08 billion worldwide earnings in 2012.
