Almost Human series premiere TV billboards...

Almost Human series premiere billboard
Almost Human sounds like perfect title this close to Halloween, but this new series isn't about nightmarish ghosts and ghouls, it's set in the far more sci-fi world of robots and advanced technology.

Set in the year 2048, Karl Urban stars as 'Detective John Kennex', a cop and survivor of one of the most deadly attacks against the police department. After being in a coma he wakes to discover his leg missing and replaced by a synthetic body part, and his partner dead.

In the future every cop must now partner with a robot and when Kennex returns to work he terminates the MX-43 robot assigned to him and instead finds a new partner in the form of a discontinued, oddly emotional android model named 'Dorian', played by Michael Ealy.

Now that Kennex is part machine with his synthetic limb and Dorian is part human with his emotions, they make the perfect crime-fighting partners of the near future.
Almost Human season 1 billboard
Karl Urban recently played the young 'Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy' in the rebooted Star Trek film franchise and 'Judge Dredd' in the 2012 movie remake, plus Michael Ealy starred in the short-lived FlashForward TV show and the movie Underworld: Awakening, so they are both no stranger to the science fiction and fantasy genre.
Almost Human series premiere billboard
These billboards for the new Fox series, hopefully a suitable replacement for the geektastic Fringe, were spotted along Sunset Boulevard on October 16, plus along Ventura Boulevard in Studio City on October 22, 2013.

The overlapping imagery of the cop partners in the ad creative isn't anything new for the sci-fi genre, but it does help convey the themes of the show and the tagline 'Some cops are born, others are made' is a pretty clever play on words too.
Almost Human billboard
Originally planned to air on November 4, the series debut has now been pushed back two weeks to try and capitalise on the potential Sunday football fans for a two-night premiere starting November 17, 2013.

UPDATED: Here's a larger landscape ad for the new TV show spotted along Highland Avenue at Franlkin Avenue on November 14, 2013.

Giant Emirates Airlines Hello Tomorrow billboards...

Emirates A380 taking off Dec 2 giant billboard
You should all know by now that Daily Billboard is a sucker for a giant-sized billboard, and this impressive ad location along Wilshire Boulevard often has the most eye-catching ads in town.

Theses two arresting super-sized billboards are for the premium Emirates Airlines, which apparently won Airline of the Year in 2013 for its outstanding four-star service.
Giant Emirates A380 billboard Wilshire Boulevard
The luxury airline will also be upgrading its Los Angeles-Dubai service to the A380 Airbus from December 2, 2013, so if you want to travel in style in a private suites, enjoy flat-bed massage seats and shower spas 40,000 feet above the clouds, now's your chance to indulge yourself (or get your company to pay for you to travel at least).
Giant Emirates in-flight attendants billboard Wilshire Boulevard
The giant cabin crew billboard was snapped along Wilshire Boulevard last year on June 24, 2012, whilst the new A380 champagne creative was photographed on October 18, 2013.

Obviously not everyone can afford to travel the same way, so be sure to also check out these Virgin America billboards for another approach to airline advertising.

Plus don't forget to take a look at Daily Billboard's 'Travel' category for even more travel and tourism ad campaigns.

Are you ready for lift off, as Daily Billboard certainly feels like getting away from it all with champagne glass in hand.

Giant Call of Duty: Ghosts video game billboards...

Giant Call of Duty Ghosts video game billboard
Daily Billboard always like to start the week with a special ad creative, whether it be a really cool visual, special extension, special installation or a giant-sized wallscape.

So here's a super-sized billboard for the new Call of Duty: Ghosts video game, which you know is just going to sell in bucket loads the minute it's released.
Giant Call of Duty Ghosts game billboard
This tenth installment in the Call of Duty first person shooter game franchise, will see players assume the role of soldier dressed in a special 'Ghost' uniform, part of an elite paramilitary force skilled in guerrilla warfare, clandestine operations and infiltration behind enemy lines.
Call of Duty Ghosts billboard
This massive ad with the soldier pulling down his skull mask over his face is pretty eye-catching, and it's interesting that there's not a gun in sight in this creative.

If you like this huge billboard spied along Beverly Boulevard on the side of the Sofitel Hotel on October 25, 2013, be sure to also check out this giant billboard for Call of Duty: MW3 and giant Call of Duty: Black Ops II video game billboard ad.
Call of Duty Ghosts video game billboard
This Call of Duty: Ghosts billboard is pretty good timing for Halloween too, as apparently these ghosts don't just take on their foes, they haunt their enemies.

UPDATED: It seems the Sofitel Hotel billboard was just the opening salvo in the ad campaign for the new Call of Duty game, as a new super-sized creative has appeared along the busy commuter belt of Sunset Strip.

This giant billboard was snapped on the side of the Sunset Towers building on November 8, 2013. With Assassin's Creed IV and Batman: Arkham Origins ads also filling L.A.'s skies this fall, let the battle for video game billboard domination begin.

Azzaro Chrome United fragrance billboard...

Azzaro Chrome United fragrance billboard
With the nights drawing in and the clocks about to go back an hour soon, it's nice to see an ad keeping the feel of summer alive.

This stylish lifestyle billboard for the launch of Azzaro's new Chrome United fragrance apparently has spicy-woody notes and was inspired by time spent with friends and the fun moments that make life more enjoyable and relaxing.
Azzaro Chrome United fragrance billboard
This new fragrance ad certainly captures what the brand was hoping to achieve and was spied along Sunset Plaza above Mel's Drive-In Diner on October 5, 2013.

Daily Billboard especially likes the colour combination of the mono photograph and the men's cologne bottle in blue, which helps it really pop against the grey tonal background.
Azzaro Chrome United mens fragrance billboard
Expect to see even more billboards for designer fragrances, eyewear and jewelry as the gift-giving season approaches, but as long as they all look this cool, at least they'll be pleasant on the eye.

Ender's Game movie billboards...

Enders Game movie billboard
To support this movie or not to support this movie, that is the million dollar question. Ender's Game may be set in the far future, but sadly it's mired in the worst of humanity's problems today.

Orson Scott Card the writer of the 1985 book that this sci-fi movie is adapted from is a confirmed homophobe, which doesn't make for a very bright future for humanity, even though we all know (those of us who are sane at least) that equality is inevitable, a movement especially evident amongst the younger generations which is interesting considering this movie's premise features kids as the saviors of Earth.
Enders Game movie billboard
Asa Butterfield was great as the wide-eyed kid in Hugo, and he's the titular 'Ender Wiggin' in this futuristic battle for Earth's survival. Plus he's joined by the likes of Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola David, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin (who were obviously more interested in a paycheck than supporting civil rights).
Ender's Game movie billboard
This suitably science fiction looking billboard for Ender's Game was first spotted along Fairfax Avenue on October 5 and later along Cahuenga Boulevard on October 11, 2013.

The controversy surrounding this movie means that it probably won't be judged on its own merits and there is a boycott planned by the gay community and their supporters, so even though Daily Billboard is featuring the film's promotional adverts we certainly do not support the author's anti-gay prejudice and hateful beliefs.

Let's hope the future is far brighter than this one bigot envisages.

Burberry watches Britain Gabriella Wilde billboard
You can tell the gift-giving season is fast approaching when more and more billboards for jewelry, fragrances and watches start to appear in the skies at this time of year.
Burberry watches Britain Rob Pryor billboard 2012

Once Halloween is out of the way, you know that the countdown to Christmas will begin, so be prepared.

Awaken the Dead Leg Avenue Halloween billboard...

Awaken the Dead Leg Avenue billboard
Halloween is only a short week away, so do you have your costume picked out yet for the night when all manner of creatures walk the Earth?

If not, maybe Leg Avenue can inspire you with their sexy selection of costumes and accessories, or maybe some seductive lingerie to help you awaken the dead later in the evening.
Awaken Dead Leg Avenue billboard
This 'Day of the Dead' or 'Dia de Los Muertos' inspired ad creative was spotted along L.A.'s busy Sunset Boulevard on October 6, 2013, and looks a bit more exclusive than your usual pop-up Halloween store that temporarily spring up in the disused shop outlets around town at this time of year.

Free Birds movie billboards...

Free Birds movie billboard
Hang on to your nuggets, here comes yet another animated movie with cute creatures, this time of the fowl variety in the form of Free Birds, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Free Birds Hang on to your nuggets billboard
Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson are 'Jake' and 'Reggie', two turkeys on a mission to save all their feathered kind by traveling back in time to get turkey taken off the seasonal holiday menu for good.
Free Birds Hang on to your nuggets billboard
Forgive the pun, but the colour design of this Free Birds creative looks a little cheep, er, cheap.
Free Birds film billboard
The bold 'Hang on to your nuggets' headline and the bright red, yellow and orange hues make this movie billboard look and feel a bit like a fast food or a 'happy meal' toy ad, but maybe that's the intention as it's supposed to appeal to kids.
Free Birds movie billboard
The standard landscape billboard for animated comedy was first spied along Westwood Boulevard on October 4, plus along San Vicente Boulevard on October 10, whilst the smaller ad creative was snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard on October 15, 2013.
