Jessica Lange plays the glamorous Joan Crawford, whilst Susan Sarandon stars as Bette Davis, both successes and longtime rivals through the 1930s and 40s in Hollywoodland, before being forced to work together later in their waning careers in the 1962 low-budget horror film, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

When We Rise series premiere TV billboard...

When We Rise series premiere billboard
With so many of our civil liberties and equality being challenged by the new administration, there's never been a better time for the new docudrama When We Rise, which chronicles the gay rights movement in the United States of America starting with the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City.

The four-part event mini-series is written and created by Dustin Lance Black and is partially inspired by LGBT rights activist Cleve Jones and his memoir When We Rise: My Life in the Movement, with the initial episodes directed by Gus Van Sant.
When We Rise TV billboard
Guy Pearce portrays an older Cleve Jones alongside a star-studded cast which includes Rachel Griffiths, Mary-Louise Parker and Michael Kenneth Williams.

The series follows him in the early 1970s as he moves to San Francisco and meets iconic gay activist and the Castro district's camera shop owner, Harvey Milk, who encourages Cleve to stand up for equality in the political sphere, before his mentor's assassination in 1978, and the arrival of the AIDS epidemic transformed his life yet again as he helped found the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt.

The docudrama which spans forty years of struggle also shows the intertwined lives of Mary-Louise Parker as women's rights leader Roma Guy and Rachel Griffith plays her social justice champion wife Diane, plus Michael K. Williams stars as African-American community organiser Ken Jones.

This When We Rise series launch billboard was snapped along Barham Boulevard on February 15, 2017.

Milk garnered eight Academy Award nominations and earned Sean Penn the Best Actor and Dustin Lance Black the Best Writing, Original Screenplay Oscar, so let's hope that When We Rise will also be worthy of such critical acclaim.

Logan movie billboards...

Logan movie billboard
This March Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him famous as 'Wolverine' in 2000's X-Men movie for (supposedly) one final time.
Logan movie claws special extension billboard
The X-Men movies and his own origin film struggled to show the full extent of his deadly powers, but in the R-Rated Logan he should be able cut loose with those adamantium claws, let the blood and limbs fly, and show why he's the best at what he does.
Giant Logan movie billboard 405 freeway
In the new film set in the near future, a weary 'Logan', whose self-healing powers are not what they used to be, cares for an aging 'Professor X' (Patrick Stewart) when a young girl with similar powers comes into his life pursued by shadowy forces.
Logan film billboard
Fox Studios recent success with another Marvel Comics character, the solo Deadpool movie, owed a lot to the fact that R-Rated nature of the film complemented his fourth wall-breaking character and helped to distinguish it from all the other mainstream superhero movies and TV show offerings currently being churned out.
Logan movie eyes billboard
A darker, grittier Wolverine film makes perfect sense and this installment also draws from fan-favourite comic book storylines and characters, from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's future dystopian wasteland tale 'Old Man Logan', to his mercenary cyborg enemies, the 'Reavers' and the introduction of his young, female clone assassin, X-23.
Logan movie street posters
Apparently Hugh Jackman was so excited to go down the R-Rated direction that he apparently took a salary cut to appear in director James Mangold's new movie.

These billboards for Logan also have a bolder, more confident look to them, from a close-up of Hugh Jackman's bloodshot eyes and claws, to the waning sun ad creative which sees the older, suited mutant wandering the wilderness.
