Come for the world premiere of neXt, a propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that combines pulse-pounding action with an examination of how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don’t yet understand. Coming to FOX in 2020, neXt stars John Slattery (Mad Men) as a Silicon Valley pioneer who teams with cybercrime agent Fernanda Andrade (The First) to fight a villain unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Panelists include creator and executive producer Manny Coto (24), executive producers and directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (This Is Us), Michael Mosley (Ozark), Jason Butler Harner (Ozark), and Eve Harlow (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

Preacher
Executive producer Seth Rogen and cast celebrate the beginning of The End. As AMC’s Preacher inches closer to the series finale, God’s endgame for the universe begins to click into place. Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time—or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan—will soon be revealed as Preacher barrels toward the end of the world. Moderated by Terri Schwartz (IGN), panelists will dive into past seasons that often pushed the boundaries with the most outrageous scenes on TV and reveal a sneak peek at the final season, which promises fans of the comic book they’re going out with a bang!

Catwoman. Meet the filmmakers and voice cast behind this new classic for a post-screening panel that will include Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle) and Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time) as the voices of Batman/Bruce Wayne and Catwoman/Selina Kyle, respectively; Maury Sterling (Homeland) as Hush, Geoffrey Arend (Madam Secretary) as the Riddler, Hynden Walch (Teen Titans Go!) as Harley Quinn, Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde, Kyle XY) as Jim Gordon, director Justin Copeland (Reign of the Supermen), screenwriter Ernie Altbacker (Teen Titans: The Judas Contract), character designer Phil Bourassa (Young Justice), and executive producer James Tucker (Reign of the Supermen).
