Which comic book heroes from this years movie remakes made the cut?

With only a month or so to go until the 2011 MTV Movie Awards – the nominee list has just been revealed and we’re pleased to see a superhero-worthy number of nominations for films, actors and notable moments from this years most successful page-to-screen adaptations.

MTV’s Rick Marshall gives us the rundown on the comic stars who’ve made a big impact on the big screen this year ……

In the Best Breakout Star category, it’s Spider-Man vs. Hit-Girl as “The Social Network” actor Andrew Garfield vies against Chloe Moretz, the ass-kicking, pre-teen dynamo of “Kick-Ass.” Also nominated is Jay Chou, who also kicked a significant amount of ass as Kato in “The Green Hornet.”

Jay Chou transitions well from musical prodigy to blockbuster movie star, and Hollywood welcomes his fresh take on the iconic role of Kato in 'The Green Hornet.'

The Best Villain category features the comics-friendly duo of Christoph Waltz in “The Green Hornet” and Mickey Rourke in “Iron Man 2.” We’re not sure why none of the Evil Exes from “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” made the cut here, but hey, we don’t make the rules.

It feels like another “Scott Pilgrim” snub here, but the only comic book movie to get a nod in the Best Fight category was “Kick-Ass” — specifically, the very-worthy brawl between Chloë Moretz and Mark Strong.

Chloë Grace Moretz uses her ass-kicking skills against Mark Strong in an attempt to take down the crooks of Los Angeles.

We’re starting to see a pattern here, as “Kick-Ass” and “Iron Man 2” once again get the only nods in the Biggest Badass Star category. This time, it’s Chloë Moretz in “Kick-Ass” squaring off against Robert Downey Jr. in “Iron Man 2.” The good news in this category? There aren’t any nominees from the “Twilight” movies! We’ve got a chance, comic book movie fans!

Space Hopper Saves The Day!

While getting our fix of the mags last night, TruffleShuffle came across this amazing story of how a Space Hopper saved the lives of two young girls and we had to share it with you.

The two girls aged 15 and 16 were walking along a sea wall in Dawlish when a freak wave knocked them off and swept them out to sea. Neighbours heard the girls screams and ran to help but when they realised the life bouy wouldn’t reach them, they had to come up with another plan of action. Luckily, another quick thinking neighbour just happened to have a Space Hopper to hand?!! which he was able to throw out to where the girls were trying to stay afloat. With the help of the super space hopper, the girls were able to hold on till the life boat and coast guard rescue teams arrived.

Both girls went on to make a full recovery after their ordeal and will always remember the funny faced, bouncy toy that saved their lives. Get your very own super life saver for just £14.95 at TruffleShuffle.com.

We know what we are taking with us to the seaside this Summer!

Arghhh Jennifer Grey is back!!!

The cast of the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars has finally been announced and it reads like an 80’s who’s who which has understandably got us very excited!
Even though the show is based in the states, it’s broadcast over here which means we too get to see the likes of
David Hasselhoff, Michael Bolton, Florence Henderson and most excitingly, Jennifer Grey AKA Dirty Dancing’s Baby (eeek!) strut their stuff on the dancfloor! Jennifer has been MIA for what feels like years since her roles in Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bullers Day Off so we’re very excited to see her back in the spotlight – you couldn’t ask for a more appropriate 80’s legend to show us their moves!
