After waking up at 6 am this morning and waiting in line for four hours, I am finally in Hall H for the entirety of the day. The room is going to be packed to capacity today again for a tone of great panels. One of my most anticipated films of Comic-Con is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. The Western opens on Christmas day, and stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and others.
- Tarantino was asked about his use of strong female characters, and why he writes them into his films. He responded by saying "he just digs strong chicks". While Brunhilda is a strong character, she is actually much more like a "princess in exile who is captured in the tower of the evil king. When we first catch up with her, she is struggling to escape."
- Tarantino was asked what past films he gave to the cast for reference. He responded by saying that he gave her The Flame of New Orleans starring Marlene Dietrich, which was set in the Antebellum South.
- Tarantino then was asked about his next project. He responded that he has not even thought about that since he is so wrapped up in production and press for this film.
