Here Comes the Boom movie billboards...

Here Comes the Boom movie billboard
Some actors seem interchangeable in certain movies, be it for their looks or their comedic style. Take for example Kevin James and Vince Vaughn, or Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller.
Here Comes Boom movie billboard
At first glance from that angle, that could easily have been Vince Vaughn lying there on this billboard for Here Comes the Boom, so let's hope then that Kevin James doesn't pull his punches and can give a stand out performance in this new comedy.

In this seemingly heartwarming tale, a high school biology teacher takes up mixed martial-arts fighting to raise extra money to help fund extra-curricular activities at his cash-strapped school.

These movie billboards were first spotted high above Beverly Boulevard on September 17, whilst the large portrait version followed along Highland Avenue and another landscape ad was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on September 22, 2012.

Brickleberry cartoon series premiere TV billboard...

Brickleberry Comedy Central billboard
Yeah, it's that kind of billboard today, and don't you just love it!
Brickleberry cartoon billboard Sunset Boulevard
If you think this ad for Comedy Central's new animated show Brickleberry is a tad crude or you're easily offended, then Daily Billboard has the sneaking suspicion that this kind of humour is not for you.
Brickleberry season 1 cartoon billboard
But at least you can't say that a moose peeing upright and a park ranger in his underwear doesn't make for an arresting visual on this special extension billboard.

So if this tongue-in-cheek advertisement snapped along Sunset Boulevard on September 6, 2012 does bring a smile to your lips, then be sure to check out Forest Ranger 'Steve Williams' and the cute bear cub 'Malloy' for lots of misadventures in the great outdoors.

And for a different all-ages kind of comedy also set in an American National Park check out these movie billboards for Yogi Bear from 2010.

UPDATED: It looks like not much has changed in the world of Brickleberry as this third season billboard with a clown exposing himself at a crazy golf course, snapped in the same Sunset Strip location on September 15, 2014, suggests it's business as usual and this is certainly not a cartoon for kids.

Looper movie billboards...

Looper movie billboard
Make sure you stay in the loop this week by checking out these cool billboards for Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new sci-fi action movie, Looper
Looper movie billboard
In the future, when the mob wants to dispose of someone they send them 30 years into the past where a hired gun awaits. When a future version of gangland assassin 'Joe Simmons' is sent back to 'close the loop', his younger self hesitates and allows him to escape.
Looper movie billboards Hollywood
Daily Billboard likes that the imagery in these billboards for the futuristic film are like flip-sides of the same coin, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt even endured hours of prosthetic makeup to help transform himself into a younger and more believable version of the Die Hard star.
Looper movie billboard
Gordon-Levitt certainly has been doing well for himself this Summer, with starring roles in The Dark Knight Rises and the cycle thriller Premium Rush, he's come a long way from the sitcom days of 3rd Rock from the Sun, but it's nice to see him returning to his sci-fi roots. Looper movie billboard
These billboards for Looper seem to be everywhere you turn in L.A. at the moment.
Looper movie billboard Santa Monica
From the version snapped high atop the Santa Monica Place shopping centre on September 8, to the standard landscape billboards first spied along Sunset Boulevard on August 31 and La Cienega Boulevard on September 17, 2012 respectively, plus smaller ads dotting the L.A. skyline like this one along Sunset Strip.
