Battlefield Earth: A Saga Of The Year 3000 (2000) In the year 3000, man is no match for the Psychlo's, a greedy, manipulative race of aliens on a quest for ultimate profit. Led by the seductive and powerful Terl, the Psychlo's are stripping Earth clean of its natural resources, using the broken remnants of humanity as slaves. What is left of the human race has descended into a near primitive state, believing the invaders to be demons and technology to be evil. After humanity has all but given up any hope of freeing themselves from alien oppression, a young man named Tyler decides to leave his desolate home high in the Rocky Mountains to discover the truth, whereupon he is captured and enslaved. It is then that he decides to fight back, leading his fellow man in one final struggle for freedom.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Terl: Crap-lousy ceiling! I thought I told to get some man-animals in here and fix it.
  • Terl: You... Hungry, little fella? Want some rat? It's good!
  • Terl: Stupid humans.
  • Terl: It is a pleasure to see you, your excellency, and I would be honored to expedite your clearance through security. Zete: Please, call me Zete. Does all of Earth look like this? Terl: Oh, I'm afraid so, sir. Zete: Pathetic. All the green and the blue sky. They told me this planet was ugly, but this has got to be one of the ugliest crap holes in the entire universe. Terl: I couldn't agree with you more. Zete: I hate these puny undersized planets. The gravity is so... different. Terl: Well, one does get used to it. Zete: And the human animals, grossly undersized. Ker: They don't make very good eating, your excellency.
  • [looking at an overhead photo of a car] Zete: What is this species? Terl: Well, according to the Clinko historians, the species is called "dog." Zete: Dog? Terl: Yes. Zete: Obviously the superior race, having the man-animal chauffeur it around.
Movie Trivia:
  • Author L. Ron Hubbard is the founder of the controversial Church of Scientology, to which John Travolta and Kelly Preston belong.
  • When the book was first written, John Travolta wanted to make the movie, and star as Johnny Goodboy, the young hero. Of course, he could get no investors to back him. By the time the movie was made, he was too old to play the part of the hero and, instead, opted to play the part of the villain, Terl.
  • The film covers only the first half of the L. Ron Hubbard book.
  • The original plans called for a sequel to be produced, which would be based on second half of the novel by L. Ron Hubbard. These plans were scrapped due to the poor critical and public reaction to this film.
  • John Travolta's contract for this movie had him take a large up-front pay cut from his usual fee, to around $10 million, with incentives that would have paid him about $15 million more when and if the movie met standards at the North American box office. Unfortunately, the film fell short of these standards.
