Movie and music billboards around L.A. in March 2016...

This month the skies were once again packed with a wonderful assortment of film and music-themed billboards, including some rather cool cut-out special extensions and giant-sized billboards. Here's a selection of the outdoor ads that caught my magpie eye this March 2016.

Movie billboards
Divergent Allegiant movie billboard
First up is this cool extension billboard for The Divergent Series new installment Allegiant. Unlike most critics I actually enjoyed this movie better than the second one, I felt it had more sci-fi elements as we glimpsed a world outside the walls, and I also thought all these Allegiant movie billboards were really eye-catching.
Batman v Superman movie billboard
From a film franchise coming to an end, to a new blockbuster franchise dawning and the epic battle of Batman v Superman.

It seems like DC Comics fans have really gotten a kick out of seeing their most iconic heroes going head-to-head, opening to $420 million at the box office worldwide.
Batman v Superman film billboard
Dawn of Justice heralds to start of the world building for the forthcoming Justice League movies, plus the DC Extended Universe, but personally I wish it wasn't all so gloom and doom.
Jungle Book snake billboard
Another ad campaign which really caught me eye this month was for Disney's live-action version of The Jungle Book.
Jungle Book movie billboard
The cut-out 'Kaa' snake special extension and magnificent 'King Louie' ad creative are just some of the head-turning ads, so be sure to enjoy all these other Jungle Book movie billboards filling the sprawling city skyline.
10 Cloverfield Lane movie billboard
10 Cloverfield Lane also had a cool billboard creative which lived up to the film's surprising, inventive and intense nature, and I really liked the fact it didn't take the expected plot turns.
Huntsman Winters War movie billboard
Another sequel, or prequel, heading to the big screen is The Huntsman: Winter's War, which tells the origins of Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron's characters, and more, from 2012's Snow White & the Huntsman movie.
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Sword of Destiny billboard
Meanwhile another sequel arriving after fifteen years is martial arts movie, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, this time finding a home on Netflix's streaming service rather than at cinemas.
Peewees Big Holiday movie billboard
Pee-wee Herman was also riding through the city skyline this March for his new Netflix movie, Pee-wee's Big Holiday, starring alongside True Blood's strapping Joe Manganiello.
Giant Confirmation movie billboard
Scandal's Kerry Washington was channeling Anita Hill in the skies of L.A. for the HBO film Confirmation, about the woman's landmark 1991 Senate testimony about sexual harassment by Justice Clarence Thomas.
Keanu movie billboard
Sketch show comedians Key & Peele leap from the small screen to the big screen with their new comedy Keanu, about a kidnapped cat who they try to find, which leads them into whole heap of trouble with violent gang members.
The boss movie billboard
Melissa McCarthy brings another character to life on the big screen with The Boss, a comedy about a business tycoon busted for insider trading and forced to rebuild her life when she gets out of prison.
Criminal movie billboard
Speaking of crime and Kevin Costner stars in a film about a dead CIA agent whose memories are implanted into a dangerous ex-con in order to finish a mission.
My Beautiful Broken Brain billboard
This month also sees a billboard for Netflix's new documentary, My Beautiful Broken Brain, along the Sunset Strip. The film is about Lotje Sodderland recovery after she suffered a stroke which left her unable to communicate and altered her perceptions.
Mad Max Fury Road iTunes billboard
Apple's iTunes was promoting its streaming and digital download movie offering with some cool ads, like this arresting Mad Max: Fury Road creative and other billboards for The Martian and Straight Outta Compton.
2016 MTV Movie Awards billboard
Meanwhile Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson were having tongue-in-cheek fun as hosts of the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.

Music billboards
Rihanna Anti album billboard
In the world of music, I spied another billboard for Rihanna's new album Anti. The out of focus ad creative is actually visually hard to look at, which makes it stand out even more.
Zayn Mind of Mine album billboard
One Direction's Zayn Malik mad his solo appearance along the Sunset Strip with this billboard for his debut album Mind of Mine.

Plus if you're a fan of 1D, be sure to check out these One Direction billboards with the whole group from recent years in the skies of L.A.
Iggy Pop Post Pop Depression album billboard
From a bright young thing to a classic punk icon, Iggy Pop, with a billboard for his new and seventeenth studio album, Post Pop Depression.
Borgeous 13 album billboard
DJ Borgeous also had this moody ad creative along Sunset Boulevard for his debut album, 13.
Jennifer Lopez All I Have Las Vegas residency billboard
Meanwhile this full-length body billboard for Jennifer Lopez's Las Vegas residency show, All I Have, was spotted above the soon to be demolished House of Blues along the Sunset Strip. If you like this vertical ad, be sure to check out this giant JLO billboard for her Vegas show too.

If you like this selection of outdoor ads filling L.A.'s streets and skies, make sure you take a gander at these movie and music billboards from this time last year.

Be sure to also stay tuned in the coming days for March's TV and fashion billboard roundups...
