What's it About?

In 2012, a group of militants attacked an American diplomatic compound. Some members of the American military took it upon themselves to help defend the compound and save the life of the American ambassador.

Why Should You Care?

Okay, so this movie's on here less because I think it'll be good, but more because it's morbidly fascinating. If you read closely above, you'll note that it's been directed by Michael Bay. That's not usually a good thing, but this is a movie in which he'll finally get to showcase his fetishism for the American military without having to, say, interrupt it with giant robots. That's interesting, if nothing else. And this is a list for interesting movies, not just for ones that look good.

Kung Fu Panda 3

Directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni. Produced by Melissa Cobb. Written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. Release date: January 29, 2016.

What's it About?

Po, the giant panda who knows kung fu, finds out he's not the only panda left in the world. But an evil entity exists, and, therefore, Po needs to teach all the other pandas kung fu in order to defeat the evil.

Why Should You Care?

If nothing else, the Kung Fu Panda movies have gotten progressively better, although that's only with a sample size of two. Introducing more pandas into the equation should result in some laughs, and if the filmmakers want to, it could also give us some heartfelt moments. The action will likely be at least passable, and the top-notch voice cast returns.
