People often ask why I take photos of all the advertising billboards in the skies around L.A. and the simplest answer is that I enjoy it. I love coming across a fun creative which catches my eye, outs a smile on my face, or makes me take a second look. So here's to starting another year of billboard roundups here at Jason in Hollywood (and every day on my Daily Billboard Blog), so enjoy my latest finds of all the movie outdoor ads gracing the city skyline in January 2015.
The Lego Movie also had another For Your Consideration billboard along the Sunset Strip, but sadly they didn't win at the Golden Globes and didn't get an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature, so this ad didn't stay up long after the nominees were announced.
Into the Woods movie costumes up for consideration that were on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood earlier this month.
Streaming service Netflix was also trying to get noticed by awards voters this month with this intriguing billboard for its documentary film, Virunga, about the threats from wars and greed to the mountain gorillas home in the Congo.
costume and props archive exhibit I caught a glimpse of the new billboard for Furious 7, the seventh installment in the Fast & Furious car chase franchise (and Paul Walker's final movie).
movie billboards for Fifty Shades of Grey dominating the L.A. skyline this month.
Poor Johnny Depp's career doesn't seem to be going that well of late. The Lone Ranger, Transcendence and Mortdecai have all bombed at the box office, but I'm sure he's still rolling in millions for playing these roles.
Plus over in Westwood, Kendrick Lamar was flowing his heart out on another Google Play music billboard.
As you can see, there's been lots of movie and music billboards vying for your attention around L.A. this month, and that's not even counting all the TV billboards and fashion and lifestyle ads too.
Let's hope February proves to be as bountiful and that the winter weather allows me to get the shots I need.
See you soon...
