Get Out movie billboards...

Get Out movie world live today billboard
Jordan Peele's directorial debut, Get Out, made history this awards season with Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Directing and Best Original Screenplay, and also garnered a Best Actor nomination for Daniel Kaluuya for his breakout performance in the social horror-thriller.
Giant Get Out A film for the ages billboard
This timely movie sees 'Chris', a young African-American guy, accompany his white girlfriend 'Rose' (played by Allison Williams) to meet her parents for the weekend at their secluded estate in the woods. At first they seem overly accommodating for their daughter's interracial relationship, then things start to take a sinister turn as Chris discovers the truth behind this initially welcoming facade.

In addition to the critical reception, the film's success is also notable as it came out so early in the year, with Academy Award contenders usually being culled from the back end of a year, but then the film made for only $5 million has amazingly grossed over $254.7 million at the box office globally.
Get Out movie teaser billboard
The 'Do you belong in this neighborhood' movie teaser billboard, which tapped into the elevated racism and divisive state of the country after the U.S. Presidential election, was snapped along Melrose Avenue on February 13, 2017.

Time's Up and (We) believe (in) women billboards...

Times Up billboard
One of Daily Billboard's hopes is that in the future visitors to this blog can look back and not only find examples of great outdoor advertising campaigns, but also see how the world has changed as the years go by (or not, as the case may be).
We believe in women Lifetime billboard
In the past year the Women's March, the #MeToo and Time's Up initiatives seem like a real turning point in history, so let's hope these billboards currently filling the skies of L.A. for these essential movements mark the start of real, lasting change that help empower, provide opportunity and protect women in all walks of life, from entertainment to agriculture, business, media, politics, the sports world and service industries.
We believe in women billboard
The bold Time's Up billboard was first snapped along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on December 28, 2017, whilst Lifetime's '(we) believe (in) women' billboards were photographed along the Sunset Strip on January 23, 2018.

Let's hope this positive momentum continues as time's up for sexism, misogyny, discrimination, pay inequality, domestic abuse, bullying, predatory behavior and sexual harassment at work and in everyday life.
We believe in women Lifetime billboard
No social change comes without pain or sacrifice, so here's to all the silence breakers and strong female pioneers throughout history that have led the way.

Daily Billboard believes women, believes in women and totally believes the future is female.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture film billboard
This January Netflix is chronicling the history of the National Lampoon magazine and one of its three founders, Doug Kenney, in the film A Futile and Stupid Gesture.

The biopic starring Will Forte as the brilliant and troubled Doug is based on the 2006 book of the same name by Josh Karp and set during the 1970s and 80s, recounting the rise and fall of the National Lampoon business empire and how its success and influence changed comedy forever.

Drunk History season five TV billboards...

Drunk History season 5 billboard
These days it's getting harder and harder not to drink yourself through this period in American history, so it'll be even more interesting in the future when we've survived this waking nightmare to see how people will look back on this Trumpian era.
Even more hilarious would be seeing how Comedy Central's Drunk History would spoof and lampoon this current divisive administration through an inebriated lens (let's hope we all survive that long).

These illustrated season five billboards were photographed along Olympic Boulevard and the Sunset Strip from January 21 to January 23, 2018.

Fans of the show hosted by Derek Waters can also enjoy these previous fun season promo billboards for Drunk History from recent, saner times.

Now drink up and enjoy the weekend, and don't let anyone try and rewrite American or world history for you with fake news and false facts, no matter how drunk on power they may be.

America, we have to talk Real Time with Bill Maher season sixteen TV billboards...

America we have to talk Real Time Bill Maher season 16 billboard
There are no slow news days anymore.

The news cycle, and in fact daily life, has been turned into a dangerous reality show circus by the current administration and people are becoming increasingly polarized from left to right, so it's no wonder Bill Maher thinks we have a lot to discuss on his talk show, Real Time.

These days ongoing political events and missteps must making writing biting satirical monologues, or interviewing guests and panelists pretty easy, the commentary and questions almost writes themselves.
