Baywatch is a new film based off the 90s long-running TV series by the same name. The movie stars Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson, Priyanka Chopra, and Kelly Rohrbach. Unlike the original series that was set in Malibu, this remake takes place in Broward County, Florida. The main story follows the character Mitch and his Baywatch team to save the beach from a drug dealer. Unfortunately, the film has had bad reviews saying it shouldn’t have turned it into a crime caper. There was a lot of positive critique that Johnson and Efron had great chemistry and are quite fun to watch. It has grossed already $173 million worldwide. Olson Visual created numerous graphics for this film including: banners, window graphics, T3 System… Check out these images showing our amazing and colorful work we installed all over Los Angeles.

You can reconfigure your booth into a fashion runway or stage for a one-night event and then back into a booth for the next day. It can allow you to turn a booth into a retail display by replacing your graphics with a veneer finish such as fabric, wood, or brushed nickel.” They installed them in numerous theaters around the Los Angeles area including: Santa Monica, Burbank, and Live LA in downtown.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will hit theaters June 3rd of 2016. This action comedy stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Stephen Amell, Tyler Perry, and Laura Linney. It is another movie to the TMNT empire that started as a toy franchise in the 1980s.

Audiences should be warned that the cartoon characters are not exactly the same as prior renditions. Instead, they are beefed up looking and aren’t as cute and sweet as before. The critics have pointed out that it is more based on nostalgia for the franchise then trying to create an entertaining sequel. Although, the census is that is better then the last one and creates a new younger audience to enjoy the “Cowabunga” one-liners. Olson Visual created multiple graphics for the film.
