Remember that Eddie Murphy movie “The Haunted Mansion”? Well, forget it. “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Hellboy” director Guillermo del Toro will direct his own take on the spooky-funny Disney ride. [Heat Vision]

The official “Chuck” Comic-Con poster pays awesome homage to “WarGames,” and the two winning fan-submitted posters are pretty cool too. [The Live Feed]

Showtime debuted a preview of the second season of “Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo,” the animated web series. In this second season, early-20s Dexter is challenged by a copy-cat killer who does not follow any sort of code. [Showtime]
