Tom Cruise will be the star attraction when he returns to the capital for the premiere of his latest Mission: Impossible film.

The actor is due to arrive earlier than co-stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby and Henry Cavill at London’s BFI Imax in order to greet as many fans as possible.

Cruise reprises his role of Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which was partly filmed in London and was where he broke his ankle while filming a high octane stunt which involved him jumping between buildings.
