Damages season three TV billboard...

Damages season 3 TV billboard
This striking billboard for the third season of the TV show Damages, starring Glenn Close and Rose Byrne, is fantastically simplistic, yet extremely effective at catching your eye as you drive along Sunset Boulevard in L.A.

The atmospheric billboard was snapped on January 17, 2010.

Sherlock Holmes movie billboards...

Sherlock Holmes movie billboard
This is one of the great (and largest) building billboard sites in L.A. on the corner of West Sunset Boulevard and Ivar Avenue. Appropriately it's on the side of the Los Angeles Film School and just before the Cinerama Dome and ArcLight Hollywood cinema, so a great location to publicise new movies.

I like this billboard snapped on December 1, 2009, as it's such a simple, yet confident image of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. I'm glad to say that the movie lived up to the bravado of the billboard.

Visit Jason in Hollywood for a film review of Sherlock Holmes.

True Blood season 1 TV billboardWho knew vampires would be so popular these last few years? We've had two Twilight movies and True Blood and The Vampire Diaries on TV. Daily Billboard wonders what vampire-themed fare will be next.

For now enjoy this truly eye-catching and intriguing billboard for the first raunchy season of True Blood that was photographed on Sunset Boulevard on August 15, 2008.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull film billboards...

Indiana Jones kIngdom of Crystal Skull billboard
Even though the film may have been a disappointing fourth installment in the movie franchise (especially after all those long years of waiting), Daily Billboard thinks the advertising campaign still managed to capture the adventurous spirit of Indiana Jones.

This billboard was photographed in L.A. on May 11, 2008 and the movie opened later that month in the U.S.A. on May 22, 2008.

David and Victoria Beckham Emporio Armani underwear billboard...

David Beckham and Posh Spice Armani Underwear billboard
There's something for everyone in this billboard, whether you like buff men or sexy women, or both.

This advertisement in mono for Emporio Armani underwear featuring David and Victoria Beckham (aka 'Posh' Spice), was snapped on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on October 5, 2009.

Daily Billboard loves how hard Posh seems to be trying to be a model, bless her.

Alice in Wonderland movie billboard...

Disney Alice in Wonderland movie billboard
I like how this giant billboard is surreally bursting out of the side of the building to publicise Tim Burton's no doubt unique interpretation of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland for Disney.

The creative features Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter and was photographed on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on January 17, 2010.

The movie opens in the U.S.A. on March 5, 2010.

Check out these photos of one of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter outlandish outfits at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

UPDATED: This further giant Mad Hatter billboard creative was snapped in the same location on February 10, 2010.

Legion movie billboards...

Legion movie billboard
Unfortunately this is a case of great billboard, but not so good movie.

This eye-catching poster site features a buff Paul Bettany as the fallen archangel, Michael, in the new apocalyptic fantasy-horror film 'Legion'.

Traditionally January isn't a big time for new cinematic film releases, so this billboard has a chance to really stand out amongst L.A.'s usually crowded city skyline. I love how the wings break free of the standard billboards dimensions.

The film opened in the U.S.A. on January 22, 2010 and the billboard was photographed on Highland Avenue on January 5, 2010.

Visit Jason in Hollywood for a movie review of Legion.

UPDATED: Here's another cool set of billboards for Legion snapped at Sunset & Vine on December 28, 2009.

Entourage season five TV billboard...

Entourage season 5 TV billboard
I chose this billboard to kick off things here at the Daily Billboard as it holds a special significance for me.

I actually saw Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven and the rest of the Entourage cast during the photo-shoot for this promotional campaign for season five of the popular TV show. They were striding down the middle of the traffic as I drove past on Santa Monica Boulevard.

Imagine my surprise a couple of months later when I looked up to see this image adorning the skies of Sunset Boulevard on August 15, 2008.

Now that's Hollywood for you...

UPDATED: This giant billboard for the fifth season of Entourage was snapped along L.A.'s Sunset Strip on October 13, 2008.
