Even though there was big money moved around at a Michael Jackson auction and plenty of people are buzzing about last night’s American Music Awards, the weekend was really about one story. “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” stormed into theaters just after midnight last Thursday (November 19) and racked up massive numbers care of some devoted fans, who nursed the film to the third biggest film opening of all time (though still falling $18 million short of the impressive tally brought in by “The Dark Knight” last year). There’s no doubt that the “New Moon” stars are everywhere, from our talk shows to our meals at Burger King to our local Volvo dealer.
In fact, there are plenty of places where “New Moon” characters have shown up that you might have missed. For instance, when Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performed “Empire State of Mind” at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, everybody remembers Lil Mama crashing the stage and posing alongside the two stars. But did you notice that Caius (played by Jamie Campbell Bower) also got in on the action? Take a look.
MTV News’ resident photo expert Sohyung Kang has combed through the archives and unearthed a number of revelatory shots that show the “New Moon” characters dropping into the most unlikely of scenarios. Which of the “New Moon” crew was spotted cruising around with Kristin Cavallari? Which character did a sexy dance at the Teen Choice Awards? Which one snuck into an episode of “Glee”? Which one infiltrated one of Michael Jackson’s most famous album covers?
