November 2017's film, music and gaming billboards around L.A...

This holiday season L.A.'s skies have been filled with superheroes, animated characters, returning sci-fi icons, movie sequels, films and documentaries up for awards consideration and a whole bevy of new music billboards trying to capture your attention. Here's a collection of what the big screen, streaming services and recording artists in concert had to offer the city skyline this November 2017.

Movie billboards
Mudbound film billboard
Earlier this month Netflix gave a big outdoor push to its new original film, Mudbound, which was available to see at select cinemas and on the subscription streaming service. The movie follows two men who return home from World War II to work on a rural Mississippi farm, struggling to adjust to racism and life after the war.
Giant Justice League movie billboard
DC's iconic superheroes finally united on the big screen this month for Justice League, which I enjoyed (although it could have done without such a forgettable video game CGI villain), but critics didn't enjoy so much. Not even Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' and Ezra Miller's scene-stealing 'The Flash' could save the day at the box office this November.
Star Wars Last Jedi movie billboard
One film I'm really looking forward to this festive season is the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, which sees the return of Mark Hamill as 'Luke Skywalker' for significantly more screen time, the further adventures of newcomers 'Rey', 'Finn' and 'Poe' and the final appearance of Carrie Fisher as our favourite princess and general 'Leia'.
Pitch Perfect 3 movie billboard
Another movie sequel I can't wait to see is Pitch Perfect 3, as with the state of the world at the moment I could really do with an a cappella laugh this Christmas.
Downsizing movie billboard
Another film looking to bring the comedy this festive season is Matt Damon's latest starring role in Downsizing, which sees the actor shrunken down to a new smaller world.
Wonder movie billboard
Another feel-good film on my list still to see is Wonder, starring Jacob Tremblay as a young boy with facial disfigurements attending school for the first time based on the 2012 novel of the same name by R.J. Palacio.
