Despite the film's dystopian vision, Tom Cruise and fellow cast members admitted at the film's red carpet premiere they wouldn't mind hanging around in a post-alien, post-nuclear future if they could get their hands on newfangled gadgets including a bubble ship, a souped-up motorcycle, and rapid healing machines.
