Tom Cruise's Battle of Trafalgar


Tom Cruise brought Trafalgar Square to a standstill yesterday when he dropped in by helicopter to do battle with aliens during the shooting in London of his latest film, All You Need is Kill.

A sort of Groundhog Day meets Aliens, the film sees Cruise play Lieutenant Colonel Bill Cage, who is stuck in a time loop on the last day of war between humans and extra-terrestrials.
