Cool TV, movie and sexy billboards around L.A. in October...

There seem to be slimmer pickings for interesting billboards around L.A. in October, so here are a few of my favourites from the worlds of TV, movies, fashion and more.

TV billboards

V TV sci-fi show billboard
I'm extremely excited about the remake of V, so I really hope they don't mess it up.
V sci-fi TV series billboard
The original 1983 mini-series was a must-see TV event which I loved growing up and these billboards are suitably foreboding for the forthcoming sci-fi series.

Let's hope they do the alien arrival concept justice. No pressure, ABC Studios.
The Prisoner remake TV series billboard
Another cult TV classic from the late 1960's is getting a makeover. I'm excited to see The Prisoner remake, which stars Ian McKellan (as Two) and Jim Caviezel (taking on the role made famous by Patrick McGoohan, Number Six).
White Collar TV show billboard
Another TV show billboard that stands out for its simplicity is this advert for White Collar, a new crime drama about a con-man helping the FBI catch other criminals.

Alcohol billboards
Svedka Vodka billboard
I love this futuristic and colourful campaign for Svedka Vodka which has real standout appeal against the fantastically blue Californian sky.

Hot male model billboards
David Beckham Emporio Armani underwear billboard
I recently featured this Emporio Armani underwear ad featuring the Beckhams in all their glory as part of my round-up of hot male billboards around L.A. this past six months.

I've heard whispers that fellow soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and current Hollywood favourite Megan Fox, of Transformers fame, will replace the couple as the new faces of Armani, so this may be the last we see of them gracing the skies of Los Angeles (for Armani at least).
Hot swimming pool guy billboard
Next up is an advert for some condos in West Hollywood blatantly going for the gay market with their hunky pool guy. Well I suppose that's one way to rent out your apartment in tough economic conditions.
Racy Gypsy fashion billboard
Finally for this selection is this racy 'Adam and Eve-esque' fashion billboard for Gypsy, although I think someone forgot the clothes this time around.

Sports billboards
Black Eyed Peas LA Dodgers billboard
The billboards for the L.A. Dodgers team continue to feature a wide variety of celebrities, musicians and TV personalities. I'm not exactly sure what it's supposed to say about baseball though.

Movie billboards
2012 movie billboard
For movies this month we have the suitably dramatic 2012, which is a disaster movie of apocalyptic proportions.
2012 movie billboards
Let's hope it's not a total disaster to watch, with all CGI special effects and no plot.
The Lightning Thief movie billboard
This eye-catching teaser billboard campaign is for a film that doesn't open until the 15th of February 2010, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, to give it its full title, based on the book by Rick Riordan.
Where The Wild Things Are film billboard
Next is a children's storybook adapted into a film for grown-ups, with a Where The Wild Things Are billboard, followed by an animated Disney movie made especially for young kids and families to enjoy, The Princess and The Frog.
Disney Princess and The Frog animated movie billboard
The new movie features Disney's first African-American Princess, Tiana.

Finally I'll leave you with something to get you in the mood for Christmas (it's not that far away folks, so don't go shaking your heads in disbelief), Jim Carey's new 3D animated version of A Christmas Carol, also from Disney.
Disney A Christmas Carol movie billboard
Hopefully November will have more advertising treats to offer, but make sure to check out the billboards that graced the L.A. skyline in September.

Until next time I'll keep my eyes peeled for something to catch my interest...
