Summer blockbuster movies are lined up like horses at the starting gate.
Unapologetically schlocky and pop-corny, they tend to be action-adventure or fantasy/sci-fi visual feasts. And a large part of that pow comes from the costumes.
Or at least that's the fashion philosophy behind the Norton Museum of Art's new summer exhibition, "Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television" on display from June 4 through september 4. Composed of original costumes and related accessories, the show eschews esoteric auteur films in favor of wide appeal movies: Blade Runner, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman & Robin, The Terminator.
