FEARnet: "Cloverfield" Premiere Coverage


Last week I covered the premiere of "Cloverfield" (held on the Paramount Pictures lot complete with a 50 foot replica of the headless Statue of Liberty) for FEARnet and spoke to the film's director, writer and stars as well as Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson, will.i.am, Travis from Gym Class Heroes, Noah Gray Cabey (Micah on "Heroes"), a couple of cast members from the upcoming "Star Trek" reboot and a few other folks who were all curious to see if the buzzed-about monster flick lives up to the hype. You can watch it all right here.
