I’m planning on watching Mike and Molly

The Blockbuster Premiere on Sky Movies tonight at 8.30pm is Transformers: Dark of the Moon, starring Shia LeBeouf. In this movie, the Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it first and learn its secrets.
