Tom Cruise Bought Social Distancing Robots to Enforce COVID Rules on Set

Unlike some celebrities who really ought to know better, Tom Cruise is taking COVID-19 seriously. Some might say a little too seriously.

It wasn’t that long ago that Tom Cruise read his crew the riot act after someone violated the social distancing guidelines on the set of the new Mission: Impossible film. Now he’s one-upped that and bought robots to enforce the rules.

No, seriously. Robots. Tom Cruise has a robot army at his command. I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Page Six had comments from crew members about the robots.

“The robots are really sophisticated and rather intimidating. It’s like the Terminator only not as violent,” the source added.

Now, when I hear Terminator I think bipedal humanoid robot, and we are very much not there yet with robots that would remind you of the Terminator.

I’m guessing they’re much more like Daleks.

In fact, it wouldn’t even be the first time someone used Daleks to spread the word about COVID safety measures.

Tom Cruise is a weird guy, and Leah Remini thinks his dedication to COVID safety is for show to make Scientology look good, there is a simpler reason.

“Yes, the rant that came out last month may have been a bit over the top, but he was right, and those who saw the story sympathized with him,” the source told The Sun.

“He gets paid a lot for these films but he also knows that he is lucky to be working and staff on the film from top to bottom rely on this film going ahead. You don’t have to go far to see how just how much the pandemic has affected jobs,” the person continued.

COVID has shut down a lot of jobs, and making a movie isn’t something you have everyone do from home. Cruise is right that it’s important to try and keep everyone safe because if productions can’t do that then the entire industry could be forced shut down.

Still, who buys COVID prevention robots?
