Here's a behind-the-scenes clip from the special features -- available on iTunes Extras and Blu-ray Combo Pack -- with Tom Cruise explaining how he completed the underwater sequence from the film. He learned how to hold his breath for up to 6.5 minutes, which is crazy impressive.

TV Worth Watching"The Leftovers" (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)

Why aren't more people watching "The Leftovers"? Is it the microwave-ready title? The fact that it's from Damon Lindelof and people fear investing in another "Lost" mystery? "The Leftovers" is arguably the deepest, most profound, and thought-provoking show on the air right now -- with master class acting from Carrie Coon, Regina King, Christopher Eccleston, and Justin Theroux -- and it's worth of a binge to catch up. The November 22 episode -- the eighth hour in the 10-episode Season 2 -- is called "International Assassin." Try it!

"The Amazing Race" (Friday on CBS at 8 p.m.)

Can anyone beat The Green Team? Does anyone like The Green Team? Ultra-competitive Justin and Diana are crushing the 27th "Race" (while bickering with each other) and we'll have to see if they continue to dominate Leg 9, which takes the teams to India, on November 20.

"The Bastard Executioner" (Tuesday on FX at 10 p.m.)

The historical fiction drama from Kurt Sutter ("Sons of Anarchy") will end its first season on Tuesday, November 17. The Episode 10 finale, called "Blood and Quiescence / Crau a Chwsg" was written by Sutter and follows Wilkin and Milus leading an unlikely band of brothers on a life-threatening rescue mission.
