Cars 2 cruised to a No. 1 finish with a $68 million opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. That makes 12 wins in a row for Pixar since the company’s first feature film, 1995′s Toy Story.

Premiering in second-place was Cameron Diaz’s classroom comedy Bad Teacher with $31 million. The previous weekend’s No. 1 flick, Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern, fell to third-place with $18.4 million. Both new wide releases came in ahead of industry projections, which had pegged Cars 2 at an opening of around $60 million and Bad Teacher at about $25 million.
