Never underestimate the power of Pixar seems to be the reining concept to take away from this weekend at the box office.

Fox is expecting "Resurgence" to earn $102 million overseas this weekend, to bring its global haul to $143.6 million.

Finding Dory earned a projected $73.2 million in its second weekend, putting a damper on Fox's hopes to make Independence Day: Resurgence the top movie in the country.

Finding Dory had a successful second weekend slipping just 45.8 percent to take in $73.23M for a new domestic total of $286.55M in the US and $396.85M globally.

In North America, the collection is already up to an awesome 287 million dollars just 10 days of release, posting a strong hold of -46% this weekend and holding the no.1 spot. And while Disney has plenty to celebrate, the news isn't so rosy for the long-awaited Independence Day sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence.

"Independence Day: Resurgence", which cost $165 million to produce, is yet another sequel to struggle this summer, joining the likes of "Alice Through the Looking Glass" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows".

"It was crafted creatively to be done on a modest budget, but yet [they] put out a story that was going to grab audiences".

'The Shallows, ' starring Blake Lively as a surfer who is terrorized by a shark, earned $16.7 million in its debut. Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday.

Even though it had a massive marketing campaign with headliner Matthew McConaughey appearing all over the televison interview shows, "Free State of Jones" only mustered $7.8 million putting it in 5th place.

Central Intelligence, The Rock and Kevin Hart's well-received action-comedy, held on strong in its second weekend of wide release, adding $18.4 million as it slipped a mere 48 percent to No. 3.
