The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.

Two other revamps of films from the era of Reagan and Quiet Riot did less well: Endless Love, which stars Gabriella Wilde and Alex Pettyfer, raked in $7.3 million while Robocop, whose deep bench of acting talent includes Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel Jackson (but definitely not Laurence Fishburne), scooped up $7 million. Maybe folks were disappointed they couldn’t buy it for a dollar.

Finally, outside of the Top 5 list, moviegoers couldn’t find a place in their hearts on Valentine’s Day for the Colin Farrell-starring romantic fantasy film Winter’s Tale, which earned just $3.65 million.

1. The Lego Movie – $13.03 million
2. About Last Night$13 million
3. Endless Love$7.3 million
4. Robocop$7 million
5. The Monuments Men$5 million
