Movies and music billboards around L.A. in April 2013...

The skies of L.A. have been filled with superheroes and sci-fi in April as the Summer blockbuster season begins. Here's a selection of the coolest movie and music billboards that have caught my eye this month.

Movie billboards
Wolverine movie teaser billboard
I loved this iconic teaser for Marvel's clawed Canadian mutant and the other cool billboards for The Wolverine lining the city's sky.
Giant Iron Man 3 billboard
Meanwhile Robert Downey Jr. loomed large over Sunset Plaza as an armoured 'Tony Stark' in this giant-sized Iron Man 3 billboard.
Star Trek Into Darkness billboard
The Starship Enterprise looks like it's in trouble in these eye-catching billboards for Star Trek Into Darkness.
After Earth movie billboard
Father and son, Will and Jaden Smith, reunite on the big screen in another sci-fi movie, After Earth.
Oblivion film billboard
Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski continued to recycle more than a few sci-fi tropes for the adaptation of his own graphic novel, Oblivion, to the big screen. Not even box office juggernaut Tom Cruise could inject emotion into this hollow futuristic tale.
Hobbit bluray billboard
Finally managed to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray, although it's far too long and I don't have a clue what they are going to fill two other films with.
Brass Teapot movie billboard
Another comic book series gets the movie treatment, as a young couple discover A Brass Teapot that pays them money whenever they hurt themselves.
Great Gatsby remake billboard
Baz Luhrmann reimagines The Great Gatsby for a new generation and I have to say I'm tempted by the lavish trailers, even with ever-frowning Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character. Be sure to check out these other opulent and whimsical billboards for The Great Gatsby movie remake.
Big Wedding movie billboard
Looks like Mamma Mia's Amanda Seyfried is getting married again in another romantic comedy, this time The Big Wedding.
Peeples movie billboard
Meanwhile Scandal's Kerry Washington follows up Django Unchained with another comedy about a marriage proposal, Peeples.
Pain Gain movie billboard
Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Anthony Mackie get together for their pumped up crime comedy Pain & Gain. If you're a fan of the actors, be sure to check out these original costumes from Pain & Gain on display.
Mary and Martha HBO billboard
In other news, Hilary Swank tries her best to salvage her credibility after being paid to attend the human rights violating Chechen Republic President's birthday bash by playing a grieving mother in HBO's malaria drama, Mary and Martha.
Rebel Wilson MTV Movie Awards billboard
Flavour-of-the-month Rebel Wilson looked dynamite in this billboard for the MTV Movie Awards.
MTV Movie Awards billboard
And TCM celebrated their Classic Film Festival with this retro martial arts movie billboard.
TCM Classic Film Festival billboard

Music billboards
Rdio Discover music billboard
In April the digital music subscription service Rdio debuted their second wave of colourful kaleidoscopic ads which could easily work as an Apple iTunes ad if you replaced the logos.
Daft Punk Random Access Memories billboard
After teasing us with a billboard without copy, Daft Punk added the title of their new album to this cool creative.
Sonos playbar Deadmau5 billboard
Sonos new playbar sound system could easily fit in the technology category, but as this new billboard features DJ Deadmau5, I thought it would be a good fit here too.
JT 2020 album billboard
Justin Timberlake brought out his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, it's just a shame they couldn't have paid for a better, unobstructed billboard site to promote it.
Prince Vegas billboard
Shhh, don't tell anyone but Prince is playing at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
Eagles Bluray billboard
And finally Showtime's History of The Eagles documentary is available to buy on Blu-ray and DVD this month.

As you can see there's lots of exciting new movies and music on the horizon, so be sure to check out my Daily Billboard blog to see the very latest film and music billboards as they appear.

Come back soon for another round-up of the creative ads around the streets of Los Angeles in April...
