Preview every movie coming out this fall — TRAILERS

Things are so bad, AMC, the world’s largest theater chain, lost 27 percent of its value in one day in August.

But help, like those chillier temperatures, is on the way with potential blockbusters including “Justice League,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” and next weekend’s “IT.”

Here’s a look at those and other movies you can expect at the multiplexes this fall, although release dates are subject to change:
