80s and in some of our neighborhoods upper 80s and i wouldn't be surprised if some of you are flirting with the 90 degree mark. tuesday a frontal system is going to bring us a chance of some rain showers and maybe an isolated rumble of thunder but we're going to be in the 80s for another day. so we're getting on a summer preview roll. behind that we cool down because we've got a frontal system coming through. the rest of this weekend is a thumbs up. >> it's about time that summer is almost here. >> we deserve this. >> monday is going to be really nice. and i have the day off. so i'm going to enjoy it for sure. it looks good, see you in a bit. remember you can track the weather 24/7 on the go with your mobile device. download the fox 5 news and fox 5 weather apps. search dc news and dc weather in your app store. remember they're all free. several volunteers braved the rain this morning for a great cause in celebration of earth day. they came together to help clean up

responsibility and art of commerce. >> there's never a guarantee and no one ever sets out to make a bad movie but that's what happens and i think you have to get over that fear and just take risks and know if you fail, that's okay. >> every film is tough even when you have a perfect script. >> reporter: russell crowe remembers being skeptical about signing on to "gladiator" back in 2000. >> we had 21 pages of script when we started shooting that movie. we were shooting and writing as we went. and we often get together and laugh about that because that's the biggest bullet dodge you can get to actually complete the film for it to not only be financially successful but to win the best picture oscar. >> reporter: will smith had different feelings signing on to "suicide squad." a film like this is a lot less of
it over 10 people. so the gamble is spread out over the dc universe and me and jared and morgo. >> i was the first to join. there was no one else attached, there was no script and i didn't know that much about the suicide squad comic books. >>. >> reporter: the two-time best actor winner believes there's a way to make movie making less of a gamble. >> it's not a crap shoot. a really good movie is more than just good luck. and it's fabulous writing, it's great directing, it's good cinematography, it's an insightful producer who knows what he's doing. >> reporter: in hollywood,
