Movie, music and gaming billboards around L.A. in August 2015...

This may have been a blockbuster Summer for movies at the box office, but there's been a bit of a lull over the holiday period for film billboards in the skies of L.A. Nevertheless here's a selection of cool movie, music and video game billboards gracing the streets this August.

Movie billboards
American Ultra movie billboard
First up is this patriotic-looking billboard for American Ultra, where a small town slacker discovers he's actually been unknowingly trained by the CIA as a lethal killing machine when he's targeted for termination by the very agency that created him. Jesse Eisenberg's character must use his newfound abilities to protect himself and his girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) in this Summer action comedy.
Sinister 2 movie billboard
For those wanting a few summertime scares this month, Sinister 2 was on hand to deliver with the new installment in the horror franchise, where an evil entity uses possessed children to do its bidding.
Hitman Agent 47 movie billboard
A film franchise getting a reboot this month was Hitman: Agent 47, based on the popular video games about an enhanced assassin and now starring Homeland's Rupert Friend (who took the part when Paul Walker died in a car crash).
Black Mass movie billboard
Johnny Depp returned to the skies of L.A. this month, but not as one of his more comedic portrayals, this one is for an infamous Boston gangster. Be sure to check out this other Black Mass movie billboard to see how different he looks as the violent criminal 'James "Whitey" Bulger'.
Bad Night movie billboard
Next up is a low budget movie available on Vimeo On Demand, Bad Night, where two girls are mistaken for famous art thieves their fun night out goes from good to bad.
Giant Straight Outta Compton movie billboard
Meanwhile this giant billboard for Straight Outta Compton helped the biopic about the infamous California rap group to top the box office with $60 million in its opening weekend.
Hotel Transylvania 2 movie billboard
And just in time for Halloween, Hotel Transylvania 2 will be returning to delight and provide some animated monster frights in their September sequel.

If you're a fan of the first movie, be sure to also check out these billboards for Hotel Transylvania from 2012 spotted around the streets of L.A. and New York City.

Music billboards
Miley Cyrus MTV VMA billboard
In the world of music Miley Cyrus hosts the annual MTV Video Music Awards at the end of this month, so expect the unexpected with her unique twerking personality in charge of proceedings.

Plus be sure to also enjoy these other Miley Cyrus MTV VMA billboards from around the streets of L.A.
Lana Del Ray Honeymoon album billboard
Meanwhile I'm all for grand gestures of imagery, but when I first saw this copy-less billboard for Lana Del Rey's new album Honeymoon, I honestly thought it was either a fashion ad, or a billboard for the open-topped StarLine Tours sight-seeing buses. Yes I was intrigued and maybe it's just a tease for the official album billboard, but how many people know who this is at a glance?
thought the future would be cooler Yacht billboard
Next up is this equally intriguing billboard from musical artistic duo Yacht. I think we all believed the future would be cooler, but then life is what you make it and the future isn't set.Borgeous DJ billboard
And this brand-building billboard for DJ Borgeous also caught my eye this month, not only because it sounds and looks like 'gorgeous', but also because it's a welcome replacement for a vodka ad that had outstayed its welcome in this billboard location.

Gaming billboards
Giant Disney Infinity 3 video game billboard
And finally universes are converging in the new Disney Infinity 3.0 video game edition, now featuring all your favourite sci-fi, comic book and animated characters from the worlds of Star Wars, Marvel and Disney.

Plus if you're a fan of the game, flashback to the original Disney Infinity billboards from 2013 to see how it all began.

You can also compare this month's outdoor film advertising campaigns to the movie billboards from last August, plus stay tuned in the days to come for even more eye-catching ad creatives for all the new TV shows, drinks and lifestyle billboards filling the city skyline this month.
