When we call ourselves Tom Cruise and we have 120 minutes to save the world (a story of plutonium to recover as soon as possible) the most practical is the helicopter. We keep an eye on the Seine, the three floors of the Eiffel Tower, the comings and goings on the quays. A panoramic view is a must.
Dropped (for real) by a plane over Paris, Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill land on the glass roof of the Grand Palais in the middle of a monstrous evening.

One of the trendy districts of Paris, between quiet daytime pleasure and evening outings. This time, the Canal just saved his life. Really, Tom...
