Cool movie, game and performing arts billboards...

Aside from all the new season TV, fashion and lifestyle billboards around the streets of L.A., there's also been a nice selection of movie, video game, music and performing arts billboards to appreciate.

Movie billboards
Hobbit movie teaser billboard
To kick us off here's a teaser for the first installment in The Hobbit Trilogy, with Gandalf about to embark on An Unexpected Journey with Bilbo Baggins of The Shire.
Possession movie billboard
And here's a horror hold over from last month to get everyone in the mood for Halloween, The Possession, with a tried an tested demon vomit creative.
Trouble with Curve movie billboard
This evocative Trouble with the Curve movie billboard took on a whole new meaning when Clint Eastwood decided to have a little rant an an empty chair at the Republican Party Conference. His character may be retiring from baseball scouting, but I think it's time for Clint to retire his political appearances before he embarrasses himself further.
Dredd 3D movie billboard
Judgement came for the new Judge Dredd movie this month as it unfortunately bombed in the U.S. after a great box office in the U.K., which is no surprise considering this comic book character originated in the pages of the iconic British sci-fi comic 2000 AD.
Resident Evil Retribution movie billboard
The Resident Evil film franchise got a fifth installment and they really should have stopped at four, as Retribution returned to its video game origins in a bad way. It's funny that the billboards for the movie showed various worldwide landmarks destroyed, like London's Big Ben, but they don't even appear in the film.
Looper movie billboard
One movie on my must-see list is Looper, which promises to be an interesting slice of sci-fi starring an older and younger version of Bruce Willis interacting with each other.
Hotel Transylvania movie billboard
Another film with lots of different character creatives this month was Count Dracula's luxury resort, Hotel Transylvania.
Hotel Transylvania billboard
Be sure to check them all out including this giant-sized Hotel Transylvania billboard.
End Watch movie billboard
Jake Gyllenhaal was back amongst the skies of L.A. this month with a shaven head and on screen cop partner Michael Pena in this billboard for the gritty End of Watch.
Argo movie billboard
Another movie high on my must-see list is the latest offering from Ben Affleck, who's experiencing quite the comeback as an actor and a great director too.
Here Comes Boom movie billboard
Meanwhile Kevin James takes up mixed martial arts fighting to battle for essential extra funds for his high school students in Here Comes the Boom.
Steel Magnolias Lifetime remake billboard
And the classic 1989 weepy Steel Magnolias gets an all-black makeover on Lifetime with a strong cast including Queen Latifah, Jill Scott and Alfre Woodard.
Charlize Theron Epix movie billboard
The Epix Channel boasts its big movie selection this month with an ad campaign featuring the likes of Charlize Theron, Tom Cruise and Tyler Perry.
Tyler Perry Epix movie billboard

Performing Arts billboards
Giant Book of Mormon musical billboard
The Book of Mormon had this fantastic billboard on the side of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood for the touring version of the hit Broadway musical.
Limitless LA Phil 2012 billboard
And as the Hollywood Bowl winds down for the Summer, the advertising kicks off for the L.A. Philharmonic's Winter season at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles.

Music billboards
Company Men Key Club billboard
The Sunset Strip is infamous for its music and here's a rather dapper, and slightly less rocker look for The Company Men performing live at The Key Club.
Giant Swedish House Mafia billboard
In addition this rather cool negative style giant billboard for electric dance trio, Swedish House Mafia, appeared at the end of September replacing The Book of Mormon ad.

Game billboards
Borderlands 2 video game billboard
More super-sized billboards along Sunset Strip came this month in the form of these for the Borderlands 2 video game.
Dishonored video game billboard
Whilst another billboard for the assassin video game Dishonored was spotted crouching in the skies further east along Sunset Boulevard.

If you liked these creatives, be sure to check out September 2012's new season TV billboard round-up, plus all the latest fashion and lifestyle billboards around L.A.

Until next month, keep your eyes to the skies...
