It’s a crazy story and one that nearly never happens in Hollywood. TRANSFORMERS comes out bad, stays bad for a dozen movies even though people continue to go and see the films in the theater.

Yvonne Strahovski plays Serena Joy Waterford, wife of Commander Waterford (played by Joseph Fiennes). She has more freedom than most other […]Read On »
