It is no longer news that the latest film in the Jurassic franchise, Jurassic World, has broken all sorts of records at the Box Office. The latest information we have puts the figures at around $511million dollars in the opening weekend. That is a huge deal.
What you probably don’t know is that according to World Bank figures from 2013, the above figure is more than the GDP (PPP) of at least 7 countries in the world.
Tonga—- GDP of $466.3 million, with a population of over 103,000 people.
Federated States of Micronesia—– GDP of $316.2 million and a population of 115, 402 people.
Sao Tome and Principe—– GDP of $310.7 million and a population of 192,993 people.
Palau—– GDP of $247 million and a population of 17, 948 people.
Marshall Islands—– GDP of $190 million and a population of 68,000 people.
Kiribati—– GDP of $168.95 million and a population of 103,500 people.
Tuvalu—– GDP of $38.3 million and a population of 10,837 people.
It’s just the first weekend, and I’m certain by the time the films’ run at the Box Office is over, it would have surpassed more.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Jurassic World figures do not come anywhere close to the GDP of Kogi State, not to mention Nigeria.
