To say it's been busy in the city skyline these past few weeks is an understatement, as new movies have been released and both films and music artists vie for industry recognition this awards season. Check out all the movie, music and gaming billboards entertaining L.A.'s New Year skies this January 2017.
First up is a billboard for Patriots Day, a movie about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Being a runner and having friends who ran in this race, I have real mixed emotions about this real-life event being turned into a movie with Mark Wahlberg, so it's not top of my must-see list.
Next up are two fun special extension cut-out billboards examples that having been filling the streets of L.A. this past month, the first for the new family comedy, Monster Trucks.
The second is for XXX: Return of Xander Cage, as Vin Diesel resurrects his thrill seeker character to help tackle the latest threat to the world.
Fans of the movie can also check out Emma Watson and Dan Stevens film costumes from Beauty and the Beast on display.
You can also check out these original film costumes from Live by Night at my movie and costumes blog.
And speaking of Batman, after a star turn in The Lego Movie in 2014, DC's Dark Knight is getting his own solo Lego movie this February and it looks like a lot of fun.
And speaking of horror, there's a third installment in The Ring film franchise coming to cinema screens this February.
The family film isn't without its controversy though, as footage was released of a canine performer being forced to do a water scene it didn't want to do by its handlers, causing some groups to call for a boycott of the movie.
Disney's Zootopia may already have won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film, but I'm sure it also has its eyes set on the Oscar this year too. However, considering the movie has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, it's already a winner without the industry accolades.
billboards in the ad campaign for 13th from recent months.
Plus Damien Chazelle's new musical La La Land won big at the Golden Globes with seven wins, and has also garnered a record fourteen Oscar nominations.
Amazon was also promoting its ALS documentary about former pro football star Steve Gleason, although it didn't make the Oscar shortlist.
The 59th annual Grammy Awards is music's biggest night and not only can you watch live on CBS, but you can also buy the album soundtrack of all the nominees.
Plus Gallant was trying to attract some attention for his grammy-nominated album, Ology, with his billboard along the Sunset Strip.
As you can see there's been lots to see and that's not even counting all the TV, fashion and lifestyle billboards gracing L.A.'s streets and skies at the same time.
Stay tuned in the days to come for more visions in vinyl turning heads this January...
