I love this time of year for movies, with all the brash Summer blockbusters out of the way you see a lot of Oscar contenders appearing in cinemas, plus there's more than a fair share of Holiday movies trying to grab your attention. Here's a selection of November's most noticeable movie billboards from around the streets of L.A.
Interestingly Sony Pictures have been hit with cyberterrorism and several of their biggest new releases, like The Interview and Annie, have been leaked online in what may be retaliation from the country for this insult to their leader. Surely using a fictional dictator would have been less inflammatory in the first place, talk about painting a target on your back.
Hello Ladies only survived one season, with this TV movie to wrap up loose ends in a pretty bow.
I found this installment totally lacking and the final book in Suzanne Collins young adult trilogy should never have been split in two. You can see it was totally for monetary reasons and not because there was enough material, as this film feels dreary and padded, with not much happening at all.
To me it felt like a very high quality TV show and the whole plot about using 'Katniss Everdeen' as a propaganda tool with everyone sitting around a room discussing producing the perfect video, reminded me of what it must have been like for the studio execs trying to make this trilogy into four movies.
The ArcLight Hollywood cinema had a spectacular exhibit of original costumes worn by Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in Exodus: Gods and Kings, so be sure to check them out.
In the world of documentary's Netflix had this cool billboard for E-Team, about investigators into war crimes against humanity, which looks more like the marketing for an action movie to get your attention.
For the Curious billboard campaign for KCRW radio station, this time featuring a closeup of the playful bear from West Hollywood's The Game sculptures.
As you can see there's more than enough movies and music billboards trying to catch your eye, especially when there are so many other TV show billboards, fashion billboards and lifestyle outdoor ads also crowding the skyline in November.
Let's hope the cool creatives keep coming as we countdown to the end of the year. Be sure to check out my Daily Billboard blog every day for all my latest finds...
