Los Angeles Haunted Hayride 2016 billboards...

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride Halloween 2016 billboard
Happy Halloween everyone. What better way to mark the this day of tricks and treats than with this array of billboards for L.A.'s Haunted Hayride, which have become an annual staple in the city skyline these past few years.

In the past the Hayride's creepy Jack O'Lantern design has been accompanied by blood splattered family photos, decapitated and suffocated heads, reaching zombie hands, sinister ghouls and creepy clowns, but this October bloody pentagrams and maybe a touch of satanic devil worshipping seem to be the order of the day to attract visitors to Griffith Park's old abandoned zoo Halloween attractions.

Dishonored 2 video game billboards...

Dishonored 2 video game billboard
You often see gaming billboards popping up in the skies at this time of year, maybe it's because we're fast approaching the gift-giving season, or that the weather is turning more wintery and people are staying in more to shelter from the cold and dark.
Dishonored 2 game billboard
These sinister billboards for Dishonored 2 have popped up just in time these past few weeks to captilise on the spooky Halloween season.
Dishonored 2 billboard
In this stealth action-adventure sequel, you must help the deposed 'Empress Emily Kaldwin' reclaim her throne from an otherworldly usurper, playing as either her or her protector, 'Corvo Attano', and wielding a variety of supernatural abilities.
Dishonored 2 video game billboard
These Dishonored 2 billboards were first spied above the Sunset Strip and along Fairfax Avenue on October 5, 2016, plus fans of the game franchise can also check out these Dishonored game launch billboards from 2012.

Haters Back Off series premiere TV billboards...

Haters Back Off series launch billboard
Netflix's original series keep coming and this billboard creative for Haters Back Off is sure to put a smile on your face.
Haters Back Off TV series billboard
Colleen Ballinger brings her YouTube creation, 'Miranda Sings', to the streaming service and the comedy show revolves around the oddball family life of the overly confident, self-absorbed teenage singer/dancer/actress/model whose star is rising, even though she doesn't possess an ounce of talent.
Haters Back Off series premiere billboard
Let's face it, reality shows like Big Brother and Keeping Up with the Kardashians have a lot to answer for, where kids feel they are entitled to be rich and famous without actually working hard. Instead they hope that making fools of themselves will help them be 'discovered' and become Z-List celebrities by over-sharing in the hopes of being liked by the masses and seeming interesting.

Conversely the flip side of that equation is that self-publishing and vlogging on channels like YouTube and Vine have actually allowed real talent to flourish and find an audience where they may never have been discovered through traditional channels.
Haters Back Off season 1 billboard
These eye-catching series launch billboards were snapped above Santa Monica Boulevard in West L.A. and along Melrose Avenue on October 17, 2016.

This ad creative reminds Daily Billboard, but is almost the exact opposite, of this second season billboard for Devious Maids.
Haters Back Off series premiere billboard
You don't become famous without attracting a few haters and 'She's ready for her close up', but are you ready to embrace Miranda Sings?

The Great Indoors series premiere TV billboards...

Great Indoors series premiere billboard
This Fall Joel McHale stars as roving adventure writer used to exploring the great outdoors who in a timely twist of fate finds his magazine ditching his globetrotting reporting to be a web-only publication.
Now tasked with managing a team of millennials in The Great Indoors, he has to struggle with the modern day challenges of online click-baiting, listicles and a self-obsessed selfie generation, rather than conquering the obstacles of the wilderness.
Great Indoors season 1 billboard
These fun role reversal series launch billboards, with wild animals looking in on the humans as if they were in a zoo, were snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard and Westwood Boulevard from September 28 to October 1, 2016.

Pure Genius series premiere TV billboards...

Pure Genius series premiere billboard
These billboards for new medical tech drama Pure Genius are certainly trying their hardest to evoke Steve Jobs with their thoughtful hand-on-chin imagery.

In the new series Augustus Prew plays a young Silicon Valley tech billionaire named 'James Bell' who builds the most high-tech, cutting-edge hospital imaginable, Bunker Hill, filled with pioneering inventors and expert and experimental doctors to help cure rare medical mysteries in order to save lives.
Pure Genius season 1 billboard
Not wanting to be weighed down by bureaucracy (or ethics it seems), he enlists the talents of a veteran surgeon (played by Dermot Mulroney) to help him with his new innovative approach to medicine, the only problem being he was fired for controversially killing his patient because he tried an untested treatment.
Pure Genius TV series billboard
These series premiere billboards for the medical drama were photographed along Melrose Avenue, La Brea Avenue and Pico Boulevard from September 28 to October 1, 2016.

For more billboards paying homage to Apple's co-founder you can also take a look at these Silicon Valley season one billboards and these Steve Jobs movie billboards.
Pure Genius series launch billboard
Let's see if this medical utopia will be the cure for all the similar hospital dramas that have graced the small screen in the past and present.

Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency series premiere billboard
This Fall BBC America adapts Douglas Adam's Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency novel series for the small screen, although it's not the first time the eccentric detective has been brought to life on television.

This time around the titular sleuth is played by Samuel Barnett (previously embodied by Stephen Mangan in the BBC series which ran from 2010 to 2012) and Elijah Wood stars as his reluctant assistant as they investigate odd coincidences and mysterious circumstances.

This red series launch billboard certainly stands out in the city skyline and also hints at their odd relationship, and was spotted along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on October 5, 2016.

Fortunately, as he suffers from amnesia he's assisted by 'Dr. Sienna Brooks' (played by Rogue One's Felicity Jones) as they race across Europe to help prevent an apocalyptic virus from being released on humanity.

Ron Howard also returns to direct this follow-up to 2006's The Da Vinci Code and 2009's Angels & Demons based on the author's 2013 book of the same name, and is no stranger to working with Tom Hanks after directing him in 1995's Apollo 13.

With another book still to be adapted, The Lost Symbol, will this be the last we see of Robert Langdon on the big screen? We suppose it depends on whether Inferno sets the box office on fire, or the new film gets shot down in flames.
