Why It Was Cancelled

  • The first Battlefield Earth film was panned by critics, failed at the box office and Franchise Pictures, the company that co-distributed the film went out of business. It was also cancelled since Franchise Pictures made a number of other failures including 3000 Miles to Graceland, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever, Half Past Dead and Feardotcom.
  • 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.

Result

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