LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pixar Animation remains undefeated at the box-office races.

The Disney unit’s animated sequel “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 1995’s “Toy Story.”

“Cars 2″ nearly matched the $68.1 million debut of Disney-Pixar’s “Up” two years ago, though it was well below the company’s record of $110.3 million for last year’s “Toy Story 3.”

The original “Cars” had a $60.1 million debut in 2006, but factoring in today’s higher admission prices, it sold more tickets than “Cars 2.”

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 with $18.4 million.
