All eyes will be on the weekend box office totals as DC's "The Flash" and Pixar's "Elemental" look to put their studios back on track. The future of the DC Universe has probably been decided, but a massive opening weekend for "The Flash" might make things more interesting. Meanwhile, "Elemental" hopes to capture the same audience that made "Super Mario Bros. Movie" a massive hit.

Those looking to stay indoors this weekend should consider Netflix's "Extraction 2" or FX's new "The Full Monty" series.
