Film, music and gaming billboards entertaining L.A.'s June 2017 skies...

I may have been in the U.K. for around half this month, but that doesn't mean there wasn't an abundance of movie, music and gaming billboards filling L.A.'s skyline this June 2017. Here's a cool collection of outdoor ads for summer blockbusters, new music releases and forthcoming video games turning heads in Hollywoodland this month.

Movie billboards
Wonder Woman movie billboard
First up is the Amazon princess Wonder Woman starring in her own solo movie and destroying box office records.

If you liked the superhero movie as much as I did, you can also enjoy these Wonder Woman film costumes on display.
Spiderman Homecoming movie billboard
Speaking of comic book heroes, after cameoing in Captain America: Civil War last year, Spider-man is getting a big screen reboot this summer as Tom Holland takes on the web-slinger's mantle with the help of Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man.
Captain Underpants movie billboard
A billboard which made me smile at the beginning of June was this special extension cut-out for Captain Underpants in his debut movie outing.
Giant Cars 3 movie billboard
Also in the world of animation, Disney and Pixar's Cars film franchise was racing back into the skies (and cinemas) for a third outing.

Be sure to check out all these other Cars 3 movie billboards which certainly look more grown-up and gritty.

Giant Mummy sarcophagus Hollywood
No matter the cool billboards for The Mummy, giant-sized sarcophagus gimmicks at Hollywood & Highland and the star power of Tom Cruise, even all this couldn't help the reboot at the box office which was intended to kickstart Universal's 'Dark Universe' filled with classic monsters and creatures.
Transformers Last Knight movie billboard
Meanwhile another film franchise back for a fifth installment this summer was Transformers: The Last Knight.
Transformers Last Knight billboard
Not even Autobots 'Optimus Prime' and 'Bumblebee' could help stop the movie delivering a record low at the U.S. box office though. I think there's a pattern here, suggesting that audiences want new and exciting ideas and not the same old regurgitated nonsense.
Dunkirk movie billboard
After playing with DC superheroes and venturing into dreams and space, director Christopher Nolan has set his sights on the past and the events of Dunkirk during WWII in his latest blockbuster.
War for Planet of the Apes movie billboard
And speaking of war it's time for another rebooted sci-fi sequel with War for the Planet of the Apes arriving on cinema screens this summer.
47 Meters Down movie billboard
Meanwhile if it was scares you were after this summer, then maybe shark thriller 47 Meters Down starring Claire Holt and Mandy Moore as divers in trouble could deliver.
Big Sick movie billboard
In the world of comedy, The Big Sick was exploring cultural differences as a Pakistan-born aspiring comedian and grad student who becomes ill grow closer.

Plus Scarlett Johansson was reuniting with college friends for her bachelorette party that goes horribly wrong in Rough Night.

Meanwhile on HBO Andy Samberg and friends were poking fun at professional cyclists using performance enhancing drugs in Tour de Pharmacy.
