Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll season two TV billboards...

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll season 2 billboard
Daily Billboard is going to start sounding like a broken record soon, but damn, those people at FX certainly seem to know how to design the season promo billboards for their shows.
Sex Drugs Rock Roll season 2 billboard
Take for example these sophomore season billboards for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll that have an edgy punk rock quality to them and come in several different colour pop art designs.

Denis Leary is back for an encore performance in the comedy about an aging rocker, 'Johnny Rock', given the chance to reunite his old late 80s band 'The Heathens' twenty-five years later, and reconnect with his estranged daughter 'Gigi' (Elizabeth Gillies) with her as the lead singer of the renamed band 'The Assassins'.

These season two billboards for the music industry comedy were first spied along La Brea Avenue on June 7, then snapped later along Fairfax Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard through June 25, 2016.

If you're a fan of the FX series which also stars John Corbett, make sure you also check out these headbanging season one billboards for Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

For more great examples of season promo ad campaigns for FX shows, you should also take a look at these Sons of Anarchy billboards, The Americans billboards, these American Horror Story billboards and these billboards for the Fargo TV series, to name but a few.

Season two kicks off tonight, and then let's see if the band will play on for a third season.

The Secret Life of Pets movie billboards...

Secret Life of Pets movie billboard
For years animated movies have featured talking animals, in fact Disney is the master of bringing the joyful creatures to life, so why didn't they ever make a film called The Secret Life of Pets do you think?
Secret Life of Pets Duke billboard
Maybe it's because they already made a similar movie, although instead of wondering what your household pets do all day when they're at home on their own, it was what do your toys do in the playroom when you're no longer there, in the Toy Story film franchise.
Secret Life of Pets cat billboard
So this Summer it's up to Illumination Entertainment to bring humanity's faithful pets to life in this computer animated comedy (and we're sure they're hoping for the same success they had with Despicable Me and the Minions spin-offs).
Secret Life of Pets Mel Pug billboard
So what do your pets do while you're at work? Do they wait faithfully at the door for your return or curl up on your bed and sleep all day, or are they surfing the internet, watching their favourite TV shows, eating everything yummy in your fridge, or ordering treats online with your credit cards?
Secret Life of Pets Max billboard
In the film a spoiled terrier named 'Max' (voiced by Louis C.K.) lives a charmed life in a Manhattan apartment building hanging out with other pets until his owner adopts an older, sloppier giant dog named 'Duke' (Eric Stonestreet).
Secret Life of Pets giant movie billboard
Obviously things get complicated in this cartoon caper and soon the two dogs are separated from their owner and dealing with a group of abandoned animals called 'The Flushed Pets' who hate humans (no wonder it's not a Disney movie).

Hopefully everything will work itself out, otherwise there will be tears before bedtime with the younger audience we're sure.

Streets posters for this new animated movie are first spied over in West L.A. on April 16, whilst the other fun character special extension, standard and super-sized billboards were snapped around the streets of L.A. from June 16 to June 25, 2016.

Regardless of whether you're a dog or cat person, how can you not love all these cute billboards filling the sprawling city skyline for the movie.
Secret Life of Pets Max dog billboard
Disney/Pixar's undersea odyssey sequel, Finding Dory, broke box office records recently, so do you think that The Secret life of Pets will enjoy similar success this Summer?

For more examples of animated talking animals make sure you also check out HBO's Animals TV series billboards, Disney's Zootopia movie billboards, these Madagascar 3 movie billboards and these Ice Age Continental Drift movie billboards to name but a few.
Secret Life of Pets Terrier Max billboard
And if you're suspicious of what your pet gets up to whilst you're not home, maybe you should check out these Nest in-home security cam billboards.

Maybe what you should really be thinking about is what your pet is doing while you're at the cinema watching this movie.
Secret Life of Pets giant Pops billboard
UPDATED: Here's also a cute special extension billboard for the bunny 'Snowball', spotted along La Cienega Boulevard on July 7, 2016.

However looks can be deceiving as this fluffball is the ringleader of the Flushed Pets, so not as cute and cuddly as he looks.

Dead of Summer series premiere billboard
Are you ready to travel back to the late 1980s and enjoy the Dead of Summer this TV season?

Daily Billboard isn't sure what it is it with kids and their fascination with horror these days, maybe its those spooky old campfire stories they were told when they were younger, but Freefrom is following the likes of MTV's Scream TV series and Fox's Scream Queens with their own Summer slasher series.
Dead of Summer series launch billboard
The new coming-of-age horror series takes place at the recently reopened Camp Stillwater, where supernatural forces are stirring and creating an atmosphere of evil.

This tire swing ad creative with only the legs of the body showing over the idyllic lake is a pretty creepy visual that makes you look twice.
