Brie Larson made Captain Marvel‘s opening weekend a memorable one for some lucky fans.

The Oscar winner, 29, dropped by a movie theater to surprise moviegoers during a screening of her new Marvel movie. Decked out in a custom Juicy Couture Captain Marvel jumpsuit mirroring her costume on the film, Larson sipped on a cup with her face on her on it as she went in to surprise the audience.

“I just heard that I was on the cups and popcorn and wanted to see for myself,” Larson tells the audience in a video shared by the official Captain Marvel Twitter account. “Thank you so much for coming, you guys are so awesome to come opening weekend.

“The ultimate #CaptainMarvel experience! @BrieLarson helped fans get their popcorn and soda on opening weekend. #HigherFurtherFaster,” the Captain Marvel Twitter account wrote alongside photos of Larson meeting fans and giving them popcorn.
