    She says there was extra security in the theater and people were curious what was happening.

    After his surprise entrance, Pitt thanked fans for coming to see his movie and talked about a local favorite. "I just crushed a cheesesteak next door," said Pitt. "It really is the perfect sandwich." 

    Pitt surprised fans in two different theaters at the Regal in King of Prussia before the screening of his zombie flick, which he describes as "the most intense thing you'll see all summer."
