This month there was a veritable smorgasbord of special extensions and giant-sized creatives tantalizing passersby in the L.A. skyline. There were many films taking advantage of Halloween season, plus a smattering of spy thrillers, biopics, fantasy, sci-fi, animation and more trying to capture our attention.
Another cool special extension billboard this month was for The Peanuts Movie, bringing 'Charlie Brown' and his best pal 'Snoopy' to cinemas in a new computer-aninmated 3D adventure.
'Katniss Everdeen' was also back and super-sized in the skies of L.A. this October for the final installment of The Hunger Games movie franchise, Mockingjay Part 2. The greedy studio split the final book in half, when there clearly wasn't enough material to fill two films, so it'll be nice to see the conclusion after the disappointing first part.
Another attention-grabbing billboard this month was for the Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, which aside from the vibrant yellow background had this special extension embellished billboard with a clever zombie-killing Swiss Army knife creative.
It underperformed at the box office, but maybe it would have helped if they'd also used director Steven Spielberg's name more prominently in the marketing campaign to help sell the movie.
outdoor advertising campaign for Crimson Peak was really ethereal and striking.
Pan movie billboards were quite spellbinding, especially the flying 'Jolly Roger' version.
Electronica artist Roderick Jayne has been spotted in the skies of L.A. in recent months and this is the billboard for the band's album, Music for the Quiet Highway.
As you can see there've been crowded skies this month, with all these film and music ads competing with host of Fall TV billboards and new season fashion billboards.
Stay tuned for one more roundup for this month, this time for all the Halloween-themed billboards, plus drinks and lifestyle ad creatives haunting the city skyline this October.
Keep it spooky people...
