Movie and music billboards turning heads in L.A.'s September 2017 skies...

This September L.A.'s skies were filled with film billboards from the worlds of sci-fi, horror, espionage, fantasy, animation and true life stories, plus some of the hottest recording artists past and present. Here's a cool collection of the movie and music billboards trying to grab passersby attention this September 2017.

Movie billboards
Flatliners movie remake billboard
First up are these outdoor ads for the new Flatliners movie remake starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons as five medical students experimenting with the afterlife.
Flatliners film remake street posters
I'm not a huge fan of Hollywood remakes, especially when it's a classic like the 1990 original of Flatliners, but I do like the lenticular style designs of these ads.
Happy Death Day movie billboard
Another film trying to provide some scraps in time for Halloween this year is Happy Death Day, a Groundhog Day-style premise which sees a girl relive her own death until she finds out who her killer is.
Til Death Do Us Part billboard
Meanwhile 'Til Death Do Us Part is also supplying the thrills this month with a woman trying to escape from a controlling husband.
American Made movie billboard
In American Made Tom Cruise plays a pilot recruited by the CIA to work as a drug smuggler in South America in the 1980s which is based on true events.
Only The Brave movie billboard
Another forthcoming film based on a true story is the biopic, Only The Brave, which tells the tale of the firefighters from Prescott, Arizona who battled a raging wildfire in June 2013 and not all of them survived.
Geostorm movie billboard
Speaking of Mother Nature, and after after all the hurricane damage and floods in Texas, Florida, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico I'm not sure Geostorm is the most timely movie in the skies at the moment. 
American Assassin movie billboard
This month Dylan O'Brien brought Vince Flynn's black-ops recruit 'Mitch Rapp' to life from the book page to the big screen with American Assassin.
Kingsman Golden Circle movie billboard
And Kingsman received a sequel with The Golden Circle, in which the top secret British espionage agents met their American counterparts, the whisky brewing 'Statesman' agents. But don't let this billboard with Channing Tatum fool you, he's sidelined for most of the movie apparently due to scheduling conflicts, but Pedro Pascal makes for a wonderful lasso and whip cracking replacement.
Blade Runner 2049 movie billboard
Speaking of sequels and after thirty plus years 1982's Blade Runner is getting a followup, with Ryan Gosling tracking down Harrison Ford's 'Rick Deckard' in Blade Runner 2049. I wonder if Harrison Ford only agreed to do it if his character was killed off like with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Lego Ninjago movie billboard
In the world of computer-animated comedy, The Lego Ninjago Movie brought the building brick toys to life on the big screen this month in high-kicking ninja action.
Our Souls At Night film billboard
Over on Netflix this month the streaming service was reuniting Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in the movie Our Souls At Night, about a widow who tries to make a connection with her small-town Colorado widower neighbour she's lived next to for years, to make the most of the time they have left.
Little Evil movie billboard
From romance to comedy and Netflix is also streaming Little Evil this month, about a man who discovers his new step-son may be the Antichrist himself (he does look a little like 'Damien' from the Omen movies).
First They Killed My Father billboard
Meanwhile Anjelina Jolie's latest directing gig, First they Killed My Father, tells the story of Cambodian author and activist Loung Ung and the horrors she suffered as a child under the rule of the Khmer Rouge.
Strong Island documentary billboard
Netflix has also become a real destination for documentaries and Strong Island is one of its latest offerings is from filmmaker Yance Ford, examining the violent murder of his brother.
Spielberg documentary billboard
And speaking of documentaries and HBO and director Susan Lacy turns her focus to the life of Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg this October.

Plus Lady Gaga's life was also in the city skyline and going under the microscope in the documentary 'Five Foot Two' from Chris Moukarbel, following the pop star as she busily prepared to release her Joanne album, wow the crowds at the Super Bowl and starring in American Horror Story: Roanoke.
