"Random theatre pop ups in London! You might just see me," Boyega tweeted.

John Boyega is making Star Wars: The Force Awakens even more memorable for some fans with his surprise visits to U.K. movie theaters. 

The actor, who plays Finn in the latest installment of the popular space-adventure franchise, posted pictures on Sunday of shocked, happy fans reacting to him dropping in as they prepared to watch the film that is already obliterating box-office records. 

Boyega, who also dropped by some New York theaters on Friday, posted video of himself saying hi to people as they stopped to watch the film's trailer. 

J.J. Abrams' reboot shattered numerous box-office records over the weekend, grossing $238 million in North America — the biggest opening of all time, not accounting for inflation — for a global launch of $517 million.
