After spending Thanksgiving with daughter Suri, Tom Cruise filmed scenes for his upcoming science fiction film All You Need Is Kill in London on Sunday.

The actor, who plays alien fighter Lt. Col. Bill Cage, landed in a helicopter in the middle of the usually bustling Trafalgar Square, which was shut down for shooting, in the heart of London, the People reported.

Tom stars alongside Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton in the action flick based on a novel by Japanese sci-fi author Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The plot follows a soldier who becomes caught in a time loop as he battles aliens, becoming better skilled as he's forced to fight the final day of warfare over and over.
