Django Unchained At SDCC
I love Comicon, but adding DJANGO UNCHAINED made it an especially sweet pilgrimage!
First of all, we flew there. How am I gonna do that four hour drive after that 40 minute flight? I’m ruined.
This may not read as a huge line that went on for blocks of fans who were waiting to get into Hall H to see the DJANGO presentation, but that’s what it is.
Quentin, Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Don Johnson and Walt Goggins were all great on the panel. Christoph Waltz got a staggering amount of applause.
We played the super secret, industry only 8 minute sizzle reel we had only played in Cannes. The response was overwhelming. To sit in the middle of 6500 fans cheering as a black man gets revenge on evil slavers…I got choked up. From a conversation at a party to a dream come true.
Next Quentin and I rushed over to the other end of the convention hall to announce the DJANGO UNCHAINED limited comic series. The book will be based on Quentin’s original script.
After some shopping on the convention floor, we headed over to the DJANGO signing booth where Quentin and the cast signed pictures for fans.
Then we hopped back on the plane and headed back to LA. A good time had by all.
