Tom Hardy Has The Perfect Reaction When Asked If "Mad Max" Should Be A "Man's Movie"

Does he look amused?

Earlier this month, the cast and director of “Mad Max: Fury Road” – George Miller, Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, and Doug Mitchell – held a press conference for the action movie at the Cannes Festival.

Charlize Theron's role as the powerful Imperator Furiosa and the female-led cast has led to many describing the dystopian film as a "feminist movie", with a message of gender equality.

So it came as no surprise that during the press conference, reporters would ask questions about the importance of women in the movie.

A reporter from the Toronto Star asked Tom Hardy: "When you were reading the script, did you ever think, why are all these women in here, I thought this was supposed to be a man's movie?"

Next Up for GoPro: Virtual Reality and Drones
GoPro made its name strapping rugged cameras onto helmets. Now it's pushing into virtual reality and drones

Virtual reality is becoming the name of every big tech company’s game. That includes GoPro, the company that gave extreme sports enthusiasts a camera they can strap onto their helmets.

At the Code tech conference outside Los Angeles Wednesday, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman unveiled the company’s next product: A camera system for snapping images that can be turned into virtual reality.

The new awkwardly named product, Six-Camera Spherical Array, will be available sometime in the second half of the year for an as yet undisclosed price. As the name implies, it’s made up of six cameras.

GoPro previously acquired a startup named Kolor, whose technology is serving as the backbone of the virtual reality camera system. Kolor’s software will turn the photo and video shots into virtual reality while people can use its smartphone app to view the imagery.

To get the full effect of virtual reality, users would have to don virtual reality headsets like Oculus, Google Cardboard, and Microsoft’s HoloLens. For smartphones, YouTube 360 and Kolor’s apps also work.

Woodman also said that GoPro [fortune-stock symbol=”GPRO”] is working on a drone — a quadcopter, in this case — that is slated to come out in the first half of 2016. Again, no details about pricing.

Woodman also added that while the company is working on its own drone, it would continue to work with other manufacturers whose drones can be equipped with GoPro’s cameras.
