October's best movie and music billboards around Los Angeles...

If October has had a cornucopia of fashion billboards, then it has also had a smorgasbord of movie, music and video game billboards filling the skies of L.A.

Movie billboards
Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I giant billboard
The next chapter of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay Part I took flight in the city skyline in full force this month, including this giant wall mural of 'Katniss' on the side of the Andaz Hotel along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.
Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I movie billboard
In addition to these official movie release billboards, be sure to check out the teaser ad campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I that appeared during the Summer months too.
Giant Disney Big Hero 6 movie billboard
One of the films I'm looking forward to in November is Disney's latest animated film based on some Z-List Japanese superhero Marvel Comics characters, Big Hero 6. From the looks of things though, this reimagined 'Baymax' may steal the show with his simplistic look and adorable personality.
Book of Life movie billboard
Speaking of animation, The Book of Life was just in time for Halloween with its Day of the Dead themed storyline about a young musician who ventures into the spirit realms to find his true calling and win the heart of the girl of his dreams.
Interstellar movie billboard
Another movie I'm trying not to get too excited about is Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi epic, Interstellar. Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway journey though wormholes in space to find new planets to help save humanity and I'm hoping that this film exceeds my expectations.
Interstellar film billboard
If you like these two ad creatives, be sure to also check out these other evocative Interstellar movie billboards captivating passersby in the skies of L.A. this month.
Fury movie billboard
From humanity's future to our war-torn past and Brad Pitt starred in the World War II movie Fury, about a Sherman tank crew in the final days in the war against Nazi Germany.
Dracula Untold film billboard
This month another classic villain was resurrected from the vaults just in time for Halloween with Luke Evans giving new life to the vampire lord of darkness in Dracula Untold.

Apparently this movie reboot marks the dawn of a new shared cinematic universe based on Universal Studios classic monsters, from The Wolfman, to The Mummy, The Invisible Man and even The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Big Driver Lifetime movie billboard
Meanwhile Stephen King collaborated with Lifetime on a TV movie starring Maria Bello, about a female writer out for revenge after being attacked driving home.
The Judge movie billboard
And Robert Downey Jr. took off his Iron Man armour to defend his father accused of murder in The Judge, and of the billboards for the movie drama I much prefer this version.
Alexander Terrible Horrible Bad Day billboard
If you think his family was having an awful time, then that's nothing compared to Disney's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, which is based on Judith Viorst and Ray Cruz's beloved 70's children's book.
St Vincent movie billboard
And from one family comedy to a more grownup affair, St. Vincent, stars Bill Murray as Melissa McCarthy's hard-drinking, gambling neighbour who befriends her troubled young son, changing all their lives.
Special Dumb and Dumber To movie billboard
Speaking of comedies and twenty years later Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their dimwit roles in this sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber.

If you this billboard with the life-like pigeon attached (it's not real), then you have to check out all these movie billboards for Dumb and Dumber To which are great fun.
John Wick movie billboard
Another film star making his comeback this month is Keanu Reeves, who has been garnering rave reviews for getting back to basics in the assassin revenge thriller John Wick. After all, if it ain't broken, why fix it.
Best of Me movie billboard
In the world of romance this month delivered another Nicholas Sparks adaptation, this time James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan were grownup reunited high school sweethearts in The Best of Me.
Wolf of Wall Street Epix movie billboard
And over on Epix, The Wolf of Wall Street was raising his head again.

Video game billboards
Alien Isolation video game bilboards
In the world of video gaming, Alien Isolation revisited the iconic horror science fiction film franchise just in time to deliver some familiar frights for Halloween.

Music billboards
There was lots going on in the music industry this month. To celebrate their 20th anniversary and mark the release of their new studio album, Sonic Highways, the Foo Fighters advertised their new 8-part documentary series on HBO chronicling the cross-country making of their new record.
Tony Bennett Lady Gaga Cheek to Cheek billboard
At the end of September Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga dropped their new jazz album collaboration and this billboard for 'Cheek to Cheek' graced the skies of West Hollywood in October.
Nicky Romero Light nightclub Las Vegas billboard
Nicky Romero played the Light Nightclub in Las Vegas this month and this giant-sized billboard attracted party goers along the Sunset Strip.
Red Bull Sound Select 30 days LA billboard
Meanwhile Red Bull's Sound Select initiative is bringing 30 days of of live music and more to L.A. in November.
Idina Menzel Holiday Wishes album billboard
And finally look, the wicked 'Adele Nazim', aka Idina Menzel, has a new holiday-themed album out to cash in on her new found success in Frozen as the voice of 'Elsa' and on stage in the new Broadway hit 'If/Then'.

As you can see, it's been crowded in the city skyline and that's not even including all the TV show billboards and other lifestyle ads vying for our eyeballs.

Stay tuned for more creative outdoor ads in the days to come...
