Video: Tom Cruise Spellbound by Icelandic Summer

U.S. actor Tom Cruise spoke about his love for Icelandic nature and the long summer days in a short clip about the making of the movie Oblivion, which was filmed in Iceland last summer.

“It is absolutely stunning. It is just so vast and it just seems to go on forever,” he said.

The film’s director, Joeseph Kosinki, also spoke fondly of the country as a filming location.

“The landscape looks like really no other place on Earth … there’s a beauty in the desolation there and that seemed to fit the aesthetic that I wanted for Oblivion,” he said.

“You get what we call magic hour which is where the sun is low in the sky and you get this beautiful light that lasts seven or eight hours and from a filmmaker’s point of view it is an amazing opportunity to get this beautiful light for hours on end,” he added.

The film premiered in Buenos Aires in Argentina on March 26.
