MTV News Follow In Tom Cruise's Footsteps In Iceland!
EXCLUSIVE! Check out what our Becca Dudley got up to here...

To celebrate the release of Tom Cruise's latest sci-fi action movie Oblivion on Blu-ray and DVD, MTV News UK were whisked away to Iceland to see where the man himself shot the flick.
Cruise, who plays drone expert Jack Harper in the Joseph Kosinki-directed film, exclusively told us that Iceland was "absolutely stunning and hauntingly beautiful" - so we jumped on a plane ourselves to check it out!
Once touching down in Reykjavik, our very own Becca Dudley was taken on a helicopter flight above the stunning views of Iceland - before getting dropped off at the only volcano in the world that you can go inside!
And in true action man Tom Cruise style, Becca accepted the challenge to go 120metres inside the volcano - a trip that the actor himself also did when filming Oblivion.
After surviving the bitterly cold conditions, our next stop was Hotel Rangá - which is an ideal place to see the Northern Lights - as well as gawping over where actress Charlize Theron stayed when shooting movie, Prometheus.
Seeing as Tom is a man who likes to do his own stunts, we then paid a visit to the Black Sand Desert - where Cruise shot the motorbike scenes in the flick - to fly some drones.
Explaining why he feels it is important to play stuntman, Tom told us: "It's character and it's story telling… We design the things around it. I don't do it just to do the stunt. It's storytelling."
Following Tom's words of wisdom, Becca was then put through her paces by going on a river jet boat ride - bringing a rather wet end to our trip!
Oblivion is available on Blu-ray and DVD now!
