It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Tom Cruise in a helicopter.

Sunday morning the popular tourist destination was closed off from locals and filled with tanks, military vehicles, actors, and yes, a Royal Air Force helicopter.
Looking crisp in an Army-drab uniform, cap, and aviators, the 50-year-old star was joined by a cast of extras wearing ponchos and helmets over camouflage gear and battling, if not space invaders, then the wet London weather as cameras rolled.

The sci-fi thriller centers on Cruise as Bill Cage, an Army officer in the future during an all-out attack on the Earth by alien forces. Cage is killed in a fight with an extraterrestrial being, but wakes up at the start of that day, and he relives his last battle over and over again. Directed by Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity"), the movie also stars Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton.
