Battlefield Earth is a terrible, terrible film, but I like it. It's great comedy.

David Miscavige was counting on Battlefield Earth to produce a wave of new interest in Hubbard and Scientology

In 2000, Travolta’s disastrous adaptation of Hubbard’s 1982 novel, Battlefield Earth, become a box office laughingstock. Former Scientology officials Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder have described how much church leader David Miscavige was counting on the film, and Travolta, to produce a wave of new interest in Hubbard and Scientology. But after the movie bombed, Miscavige suddenly pretended he’d had nothing to do with it, and Travolta permanently lost favor with him.
