Movie and music billboards gracing L.A.'s skyline in September 2014...

Now that the fluff of the popcorn Summer blockbusters are over, you know it won't be long before studios are bringing their 'A' game with all the movies they think are great Oscar contenders. Until then enjoy this selection of movie and music billboard advertising spied around the streets of L.A. this past month.

Movie billboards
Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I propaganda teaser billboard
If you can't wait for the next installment in The Hunger Games movie franchise, Mockingjay Part I, then you'll love this propaganda teaser billboard for District 12, the mining district of the imaginary world of Panem.
Walk Among the Tombstones movie billboard
Liam Neeson seems to be pumping out the movies these days and after Non-Stop earlier this year is back with an adaptation of Lawrence Block's mystery novel, A Walk Among the Tombstones, in which he plays a former NYPD cop turned private investigator.
The Equalizer movie billboard
Here's another billboard for Denzel Washington's remake of the 80's TV show which starred Edward Woodward as The Equalizer, although it's interesting it has a similar black, white and red colour palette to Liam Neeson's film.
Good Girl movie billboard
One film I'm looking forward to is Gone Girl, which may be one of those Oscar-worthy films I was talking about. Ben Affleck stars as a husband who reports his wife missing, then comes under scrutiny as he may actually be her killer, in this adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel thriller.
The Judge movie billboard
It also looks like Robert Downey Jr. is taking a break from his lighter comedic roles and super heroic fare with this more serious drama, The Judge, which finds him defending his father in a court of law when he is accused on murder.
The Boxtrolls movie billboard
LAIKA bring us another stop-motion animated feature this September following on from Coraline and ParaNorman, with The Boxtrolls. I have to say the story about a boy raised by cave-dwelling, trash-stealing creatures sounds interesting, but I'm really not a big fan of the gold and purple color combination on this ad creative.
Mission Blue Netflix documentary billboard
Streaming superstar Netflix seems to be carving a niche for itself in the world of documentaries with films like Mission Blue about the plight of the world's oceans.
Print The Legend documentary movie billboard
Plus a new movie about the groundbreaking 3D printing industry, with Print The Legend.

Music billboards
Giant Beyonce Jay Z On the Run concert billboard
In the world of music, BeyoncĂ© and Jay Z changed sides of the 9000 Sunset Boulevard building, going from being super-sized westbound to being giant-sized eastbound. Be sure to check out their previous On the Run tour concert billboard from last month to see the difference.
Maroon 5 V music album billboard
Meanwhile Maroon 5 were back in the skies of L.A. this month for their new album, V, as in five.
Interpol El Pintor hands billboard
And one of the more intriguing billboards this month as this special extension ad for Interpol's new album, El Pintor. The compelling hands imagery and anagram of the band's name really grab your attention, or did mine anyway.

Expect more movie billboards filling the skies as we head into October and stick around in the days to come for all the new and returning TV show billboard creatives battling it out for your viewing pleasure for this Fall TV season.
