Did you see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’? The movie had the biggest opening Of All TIME. One of the movie’s stars, John Boyega, surprised filmgoers in New York on opening night, and he did the same yesterday after returning to London.
Deadline reports that estimates for US ticket sales for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ are between $241 – $246 million for the weekend. Disney estimated $238 million, but others are estimating even higher. The newest ‘Star Wars’ movie reportedly grossed over $500 million worldwide. OMG. And I have to say, as someone who has seen the movie, it’s amazing. J.J. Abrams did a masterful job rebooting ‘Star Wars.’
John has been thanking fans by making surprise appearances at movie theaters. Someone shared his appearance in a London theater on twitter:

This guy is a STAR. We’re going to be seeing a lot more of him, I think! John admitted while visiting ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ that his friends, whom he took to the London premiere, were surprised at just how big his role was. They thought their friend was an extra in the film- LOL. Watch John discuss their reactions and explain why he was personally showing up in movie theaters in the video below.
