After spending four weeks at the top of the box office, Star Wars: The Force Awakens fell to third place over the long Martin Luther King Day weekend.

Ride Along 2, the buddy cop sequel starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, was the flick that finally toppled the 2015 phenomenon, earning a solid $39.5 million and the top spot.

But Leonardo DiCaprio‘s The Revenant wasn’t far behind, riding the wave of award season — and the 12 Oscar nominations it received last week — to $35 million.

The Force Awakens ended up landing in third with a respectable $31 million.

Innerestingly, Hart and Cube’s followup — though successful — wasn’t able to pull in the $41 mil that their original film made during its opening weekend in January of 2014.

Also opening this weekend, Michael Bay‘s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi underperformed, coming in fourth with only a $17 million take.

As for the rest of the box office results, the top 10 were:

1.) Ride Along 2 $39.5M

2.) The Revenant $35M

3.) Star Wars: The Force Awakens $31M

4.) 13 Hours… $19M

5.) Daddy’s Home $11.4M

6.) Norm of the North $8.8M

7.) The Forest $6.5M

8.) The Big Short $6.3M

9.) Sisters $5.07M

10.) The Hateful Eight $4.2M
