Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The first Battlefield Earth film failed at the box office and it was heavily panned by critics and audiences, who criticized the overuse of Dutch angles, slow pacing, laughably bad acting, plot, special effects, screenplay and direction.
  2. Franchise Pictures, the company that produced the film, made a number of other failures including 3000 Miles to Graceland, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever, Half Past Dead and Feardotcom and then, went out of business in 2007.
  3. The first film also killed the reputation of the Battlefield Earth franchise. There were also plans to produce 13 one-hour animated television segments based on the book and rendered in a manga style. However, the segments were also cancelled.


  • The film was never made due to the failure of the stand alone film and the bankruptcy of Franchise Pictures.
