Box Score: Cars 2 crossed the finish line with $68 million.

Even though the animated sequel was the worst reviewed film in Pixar's 25-year history, moviegoers drove Cars 2 [CARS2] to an estimated $68.0 million opening weekend.  The debut bested the original Cars' $60 million in 2006.   Families made up a majority of the audience, and preferred 2D over 3D at 60% to 40% of the receipts, the lowest split so far since the 3D fad began.  Like all Pixar films, Cars 2 should enjoy a long summer stay.

The R-rated comedy Bad Teacher [BDTCH] debuted in second with a better than expected $31.0 million.  Cameron Diaz [CDIAZ] and her co-stars attracted a crowd that was 63% female.

Last weekend's top film Green Lantern [GLANT] crashed 65% to $18.4 million.  The DC superhero stands at $89.3 million.

In fourth place, Super 8 [SUPR8] added another $12.1 million to bring its total to $95.2 million.

Mr. Popper's Penguins [POPNG] rounded out the top five at $10.3 million.  The family film declined 44% in its second session.
