This new creative snapped along Sunset Boulevard on August 6, 2012, looks super sci-fi and it doesn't hurt that Ridley and Tony Scott lend the mini-series some pretty cool directing and producing credentials too.

TV WEEK: Grimm season two billboards...

Grimm season 2 billboard
Grimm is back for its sophomore season and the fairytale inspired cop show helps us kick off another TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard.

It doesn't feel that long that Grimm has been off our screens and NBC's fantasy crime procedural left us with a few dangling plot strands at the end of the first season, like the fate of 'Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt's' girlfriend 'Juliette' and the surprise return of his long-thought-dead mother.
Grimm season 2 billboard
From the second season 'Storytime is over' tagline it looks like things are about to get even more interesting in a Nick's world, where hunters like him called 'Grimms' protect humanity from mythological creatures straight out of fables, legends and folklore (whilst still trying to solve everyday murders too).
Grimm season 2 NBC billboard
These Grimm billboards were spotted along Sunset Boulevard at Crescent Heights Boulevard, plus along Cahuenga Boulevard at Regal Place on July 16, 2012.

MOVIE WEEK: ParaNorman billboards...

ParaNorman movie billboard
The month of August seems a strange time to release a stop-motion animated movie about the supernatural, but then maybe ParaNorman didn't want to compete with Tim Burton's Frankenweenie due out in the run up to Halloween later this year.
ParaNorman movie billboard
Produced by the creators of Coraline, the spooky story centers on 'Norman Babcock' an outcast local boy who can speak to the dead and must use his paranormal abilities to take on ghosts, zombies and even a witch's curse to save his small New England town of Blithe Hollow from the undead.

With a clever play-on-words title and some fun creatives these billboards certainly do the job to stand out amongst all the other ads filling L.A.'s skyline.
ParaNorman movie billboard
Daily Billboard especially like the version with the back of Norman's head as he stares into the supernatural glow of an eerie forest, it evokes the iconic feel of the little boy standing in the doorway in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

This billboard was snapped along Wilshire Boulevard at La Jolla Avenue on July 26, whilst a larger squarer different creative was to be found on the opposite side.

Meanwhile the standard landscape movie billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard at Larrabee Street, whilst the smaller version was spotted along Cahuenga Boulevard at Selma Avenue on 19 July, 2012.

MOVIE WEEK: Hope Springs billboards...

Hope Springs 2012 movie billboard
Daily Billboard wonders if Meryl Streep's blushing expression in this billboard is due to the fact she's just realized there's actually another Hope Springs movie from 2003 that starred her Mamma Mia movie co-star Colin Firth (alongside Minnie Driver and Heather Graham).
Hope Springs movie billboard
Most likely though, it's more to do with discussing her sex life with her onscreen husband of 30-years, Tommy Lee Jones, as they attend an intense week long counseling program to work on their marriage with Steve Carrell as the couples counsellor.
Hope Springs 2012 movie billboard
These billboards for the new middle-aged comedy were snapped along Highland Avenue on July 14, and high above Sunset & Vine in Hollywood on July 2, 2012.

If you're a Meryl Streep fan, be sure to check out these Julie & Julia movie billboards and take a look at Tommy Lee Jones in these MIB3 billboards and this giant-sized billboard for The Sunset Limited.

MOVIE WEEK: The Watch billboards...

Watch movie billboard
Sometimes real-life events can cause studio execs in Tinseltown to make changes to their films, or at least their titles. Apparently this was the case with 20th Century Fox's The Watch, which was previously known as Neighborhood Watch, following the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida earlier this year.
Watch movie billboard
Fortunately the content of this comedy has a much lighter tone and concerns a group of neighbourhood dads discovering an alien invasion plot.

Funnily enough these billboards don't scream sci-fi (just why is Hollywood so fearful to embrace the genre?), but they do come with big comedy credentials from Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade.

The landscape billboard was snapped along Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood on July 2, whilst the portrait version was spotted along 3rd Street on the side of The Grove shopping centre on July 9, 2012.

MOVIE WEEK: The Odd Life of Timothy Green billboards...

Odd Life of Timothy Green billboard
There's something very sweet and eye-catching about this simple 'socks' visual for Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green, especially with this super-sized billboard along L.A.'s Sunset Strip.
Odd Life Timothy Green billboard
However quirky the creative looks though, Daily Billboard can't shake the nagging feeling that this film sounds awfully like a take on Brad Pitt's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Odd Life Timothy Green giant billboard
And given that Disney's live-action offerings haven't had the best track record with movies with names in their titles of late (dare we even mention the box office travesty that was John Carter), it's surprising to see something so similar being released so soon.

Let's hope this story, about a couple unable to conceive who bury their wishes in a box in their backyard and fantastically wake up to discover a 10-year-old boy on their doorstep, proves more original than the film's title.

The giant billboard for the movie was snapped towering over Sunset Plaza, whilst the standard landscape version was spied along Barham Boulevard on July 14, 2012.

MOVIE WEEK: The Bourne Legacy billboards...

Bourne Legacy teaser billboard
Apparently 'There was never just one', which is quite handy when your leading man doesn't want to come back for a fourth installment in a movie franchise.
Bourne Legacy movie billboard
Jeremy Renner takes the reins from Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy, and audiences will get to see whether the actor can live up to the solo action hero that he teased in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and as 'Hawkeye' in The Avengers.
Bourne Legacy giant teaser billboard
These giant 'There was never just one' teaser billboards were snapped at Highland and Franklin Avenues, with the standard landscape ad spied along Melrose Avenue and smaller version along La Brea Avenue at Fountain Avenue on July 14, 2012.

Meanwhile the billboard featuring Jeremy Renner as 'Aaron Cross', a CIA agent from the successor spy program to 'Operation Treadstone' that created 'Jason Bourne', was spotted at Universal Studios Hollywood lower lot on April 26, 2012.

UPDATED: The teaser billboards are steadily being replaced by creatives similar to the one at Universal Studios Hollywood featuring Jeremy Renner, like this one along Westwood Boulevard on July 26, 2012.

Plus the super-sized teaser billboards along Highland Avenue have been replaced by giant Jeremy Renner versions.

The actor's star certainly has been rising ever since his Oscar-nominated performance in The Hurt Locker in 2008.

The giant billboards and these landscape ads along Sunset Plaza were photographed on August 1, 2012. Let's hope the movie can live up to its legacy in more than just its title.
