Tom Cruise stops London traffic for Mission: Impossible stunt

Below him, trains continued passing through the Blackfriars train station as normal. Cruise, 55, could be seen darting south across the river over several takes. A low-flying helicopter was filming the scene. Traffic was halted Saturday on Blackfriars Bridge and boats were kept from the area as the film star performed the stunt over the Thames River.
