Joe: Retaliation, Byzantium, Stoker, Dead Before Dawn, and Trance as well as “end of the world” selections such as Hell Baby, Rapture-Palooza, The Colony, and Europa Report.
 
Fans everywhere will also have a window into the events because MOD camera crews will take viewers behind-the-scenes and to action on the show floor, red carpets and hot parties in San Diego next week. It’s like being there, but without the crowds.
