‘All You Need Is Kill’ was filmed at Trafalgar Square, resulting in the shut down of a number of surrounding streets.

Tourists and resident were left angry as it meant they were unable to visit the sights and trapped in road closures.

Louise Allain, of Westminster, said: “I wanted to get to Mass this morning but Trafalgar Square was closed.

Thanks for nothing, Tom.”

Visitor Mary Lamont said, to The Sun newspaper: “I can’t believe the whole of central London has been closed just because of a film.”

While filming the scenes, Tom made a spectacular entrance in an RAF Puma helicopter, which landed in the tourist hotspot under Nelson’s Column.

The square was also full of armoured vehicles for the dramatic movie shoot.

A Westminster City spokesman admitted Londoners would not benefit financially from the filming - although he added: “It raises the profile of the city and is good for tourism.”

Tom has spent the past few months in the UK filming the movie.
