Sam Edelman studded Lorissa pumps billboard
Sam Edelman shoes are at it again with another provocatively posed model adorning the billboard for their killer Lorissa studded peep-toe pumps.

This time the scantily-clad model with her strategically placed vinyl disc (at least someone has found a use for all those old records) and fierce high-heeled shoes can be found along Sunset Boulevard at Alta Loma Road in West Hollywood.

The Town movie billboard...

The Town movie billboardDon't you just love when billboards play with established conventions. For example showing us something instantly recognisable like nuns in their habits, which represent one thing, and then twisting their symbolism by having them be gun-toting, bank robbers in scary masks to make you take a second look as you pass by.

This movie billboard could easily have focused more on its all-star cast, Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm to name but a few, but the jarring visual makes for a much more attention grabbing advertisement.

The Town billboard was photographed along Beverly Boulevard in L.A. on August 25, 2010.

Gypsy 05 beach fashion billboard...

Gypsy05 beach fashion billboard
This fashion billboard for L.A. based celebrity favourite brand, Gypsy 05, keeps the feel of summer going strong.

The flowing, colourful fabric and soothing ocean view make for a simple, yet eye-catching billboard at the intersection of La Cienega and Santa Monica Boulevard.

This breezy billboard was snapped against a gorgeous blue Californian sky on August 13, 2010.

The Informant movie billboard...

Matt Damon The Informant movie billboard
Here's a blast from the past to brighten your day.

This movie billboard for The Informant is just so sunny, from the bright egg yellow colour to Matt Damon's beaming, slightly goofy face, it's enough to make even a cynic smile.
The Informant movie billboard
After starring in the likes of The Bourne Trilogy and Green Zone, it's fun to see Matt Damon letting himself go (in body and in character), as the 1990's whistleblower of price-fixing in America's agricultural world.

This film billboard was photographed on September 6, 2009 along Fountain Avenue at Highland Avenue in L.A.

Joe's Jeans swing billboard...

Joe's Jeans swing fashion billboardThere's something about this billboard ad for Joe's Jeans that reminds Daily Billboard of some post-apocalyptic playground, with that bleached out dustbowl swing set and scantily clad, wild-haired feral woman.

Obviously she wouldn't necessarily be so milky-white clean, but Daily Billboard usually finds Joe's Jeans advertising a bit too drab, so doesn't mind this intriguing creative.

This fashion billboard, with an air of mystery to it, was snapped along La Cienega Boulevard near the Beverly Center in L.A. on August 2, 2010.

DUO DAY: Sunset Strip's Dodgertown Rock Legend billboards...

The Osbournes Dodgertown billboard
Two iconic legends of Rock grace Sunset Boulevard this month, infamous guitarist, Slash, and the 'Prince of Darkness' himself, Ozzy Osbourne (and his wife Sharon).

It's clever that the L.A. Dodgers placed these billboards along The Sunset Strip to coincide with the third annual Music Festival held there which starts August 26-28, 2010.

If you like rock music be sure to check out the guitar sculptures of GuitarTown along The Sunset Strip.

If you're a fan of Sharon Osbourne be sure to check out pictures of her as the Grand Marshal of L.A.'s 40th Annual Gay Pride 2010, with her daughter Kelly.

Both billboards from L.A. Dodgers 'This is My Town' campaign were photographed on August 13, 2010.

William Shatner $#*! My Dad Says TV billboard...

William Shatner TV billboardOh, how the mighty have fallen. From sci-fi's infamous Captain James T. Kirk to some show about $#*! my dad says.

Mr. Shatner are you just angry that they killed off your character in Star Trek Generations and that Spock was used in J.J. Abrams successful big screen remake?

Anyway that was my initial thoughts when I saw this billboard featuring William Shatner. It turns out he's the star of a new sitcom based on the Twitter feed by comedy writer Justin Halpern, although 'Bleep' my dad says is the toned down version of the original source material, which was apparently about quotes from his father Sam.

The controversial name and slightly annoyed looking William Shatner all make this TV billboard stand out. It was photographed opposite the CBS Studios on Fairfax Avenue in L.A. on August 13, 2010.

Jackass 3D movie billboard...

Jackass 3D movie billboardHollywood's love affair with 3D doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon, no doubt the higher ticket revenue winning out over creativity Daily Billboard is sure, but having said all that this billboard for Jackass 3D is quite impressive.

The sheer standout along Sunset Boulevard at the top of La Cienega Boulevard is undeniable and if you missed the first two cinematic outings for the TV show of outrageous stunts and pranks, then maybe you'll love the third film, starring Johnny knoxville and the usual suspects, in 3D even more.

This striking billboard was snapped on August 20, 2010.

Resident Evil Afterlife 3D movie billboard...

Resident Evil Afterlife billboard
Milla Jovovich is back for her fourth outing as 'Alice' in the sci-fi horror franchise Resident Evil. This time she's brought a friend to fight the evil Umbrella corporation and the infected T-Virus zombies, in the form of Heroes star Ali Larter.

The billboard for Resident Evil: Afterlife really stood out when I saw it for the first time as it's a bold, vibrant visual, filled with energy and action.

It almost looks like the image is 3D, like the movie, with the zombie monster swinging that hammer-axe thingy out at you.

This colourful movie billboard was photographed along The Sunset Strip on August 17, 2010.

UPDATED: Here's another cool set of billboards for the movie snapped at Sunset & Vine on August 18, 2010.

More than just a pretty face.

How can you not laugh at this witty billboard for Nanny McPhee Returns? The old jokes are always the best and this one makes for a simple, yet funny and effective billboard.

Emma Thompson's slightly twisted version of Mary Poppins was snapped along San Vicente Boulevard in L.A. on August 10, 2010.

Big Bang Theory season 4 TV billboard
Returning comedy favourite, The Big Bang Theory, rounds out another TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard.

In their fourth season billboard the gang are all ready for their big move to Thursday night (in honour of one of their comic book heroes, Thor), cleverly surrounded by white styrofoam packing peanuts.

This fun, eye-catching TV billboard was snapped along Wilshire Boulevard opposite LACMA on August 13, 2010.

New night. New Time. Same Theory.

TV WEEK: Weeds season 6 billboard...

Weeds season 6 TV billboardLet's blow this joint.

Weeds tongue-in-cheek sixth season slogan perfectly implies what the show is all about, that is, centering on the marijuana selling activities of Mary-Louise Parker as 'Nancy Botwin'.

This simple Showtime billboard, focusing on the star of the TV series, was photographed at the intersection of Crescent Heights and Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on August 9, 2010.

TV WEEK: The Defenders billboards...

The Defenders TV billboard
Even though Daily Billboard likes this quirky billboard for The Defenders, we do wonder if Hollywood's TV Studios are running out of ideas. Not only do we have the remake of Hawaii Five-O to look forward to this season, but The Defenders was an American courtroom drama show in the 1960's and the concept is being dusted off and getting a makeover.

This new version looks like it'll be a bit less socially conscious and more out for laughs, with Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell as a pair of Las Vegas defense attorneys.

This new TV billboard was photographed along Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles on August 12, 2010.

UPDATED: Here's another billboard for The Defenders starring model Natalie Cohen, snapped along Beverly Boulevard on August 31, 2011.

TV WEEK: Criss Angel Mindfreak season 6 billboard...

Criss Angel Mindfreak TV billboardThis billboard for the sixth season of master illusionist Criss Angel's Mindfreak television show is suitably mind-bending along Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

The surreal advertisement perfectly evokes the goth-rock magician's knack for daring stunts, street magic and performance artistry.

This A&E TV billboard was photographed on August 9, 2010.

TV WEEK: Hawaii Five-O billboard...

Hawaii Five-O TV billboard
This billboard for the television remake of Hawaii Five-O makes a big splash along Ventura Boulevard in Studio City in L.A.

The original series lasted twelve seasons, so it'll be interesting to see if this 2010 version and its recognisable cast will survive as long. Three Rivers Alex O'Loughlin, LOST's Daniel Dae Kim, Battlestar Galactica's Grace Park and Ocean 11's Scott Caan comprise the show's attractive lead cast, whose acting credentials themselves should put some butts on seats to watch the reinvented series.

This fantastic TV billboard was photographed on August 16, 2010.

If Hawaii Five-O is back, can Fantasy Island be far behind?

UPDATED: Here's another billboard for the series premiere snapped along La Brea Avenue at Beverly Boulevard.

TV WEEK: The Big C hourglass billboard...

The Big C hourglass TV billboard
Daily Billboard has already showcased one advertisement for Laura Linney's new comedy series, The Big C, but this massive creative execution on the side of the 9000 Sunset Boulevard building really emphasises the theme of the show with the sands of time ticking away.

Laura Linney plays Cathy Jamison, someone living with cancer who realises life is precious and it's time to grab life by the balls and enjoy herself before it's too late.

This fantastic Showtime billboard, which is probably the most eye-catching creative Daily Billboard has seen on this building, was photographed in West Hollywood on August 8, 2010.

TV WEEK: Nikita Looks Do Kill billboard...

Nikita Looks Do Kill TV billboard
Just who is that femme fatale in the killer red dress you ask?

Why, it's Nikita the new spy and assassin on the block. Maggie Q (of Mission Impossible III fame) plays the rogue assassin out to shut down the secret government agency, Division, that recruited her from death row. The new TV show is based on the original 1990 French film Nikita and the subsequent movie and TV series remakes it spawned.

Nikita kicks off another TV WEEK here at Daily Billboard, as it's that time of year in the USA when the TV studios try out a whole new glut of shows hoping one or two will be successful and returning favourites fight to keep their audiences.

This striking TV billboard that really catches your eye against the blue California sky was shot along La Brea Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard on August 9, 2010.

Looks Do Kill.

UPDATED: This vertical creative for the sexy Nikita, also showing off those killer legs, was snapped around the same time at Sunset & Vine in Hollywood.

Michael Cera Scott Pilgrim vs the World billboard...

Michael Cera Scott Pilgrim film billboard
An epic of epic epicness.

You have to love the irreverence of that slogan for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Daily Billboard has already showcased the titular hero's 'League of Evil Exes', so it's only fair that Michael Cera gets the opportunity to shine in the spotlight on his own in this bold and colorful billboard for the comic book movie adaptation.

This predominantly red billboard really stands out against the blue L.A. skyline along Fountain Avenue at La Brea Avenue on August 11, 2010.

Julia Roberts Eat Pray Love movie billboard...

Julia Roberts Eat Pray Love movie billboardJulia Roberts makes that ice cream look sinfully delicious sitting next to that nun in this movie billboard for her new film, Eat Pray Love.

It's a very clever image that helps sum up the theme of the movie about letting yourself go and enjoying life, as she eats her way through Italy, finds spirituality in India and balance and love in Bali.

This fun billboard was photographed along Santa Monica Boulevard in West L.A. on July 31, 2010.
