Supernova is a 2000 science fiction horror film written by David C. Wilson, William Malone and Daniel Chuba and directed by Walter Hill, credited as “Thomas Lee.” “Thomas Lee” was chosen as a directorial pseudonym for release, as the name Alan Smithee had become too well known as a badge of a film being disowned by its makers. It was originally developed in 1988 by director William Malone as “Dead Star,” with paintings by H. R. Giger and a plot that had been called “Hellraiser in outer space.” Jack Sholder was hired for substantial uncredited reshoots, and Francis Ford Coppola was brought in for editing purposes. Various sources suggest that little of Hill’s work remains in the theatrical cut of the film. The film shares several plot similarities with the film Event Horizon, released in 1997, and Alien Cargo, released in 1999. The cast features James Spader, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Lou Diamond Phillips, Peter Facinelli, Robin Tunney, and Wilson Cruz. The film was shot by cinematographer Lloyd Ahern and scored by composers David C. Williams and Burkhard Dallwitz.

Before its release, MGM predicted that the film would not perform well at the box office.The film made $5.8 million in its opening weekend, ranking #8;by the end of its run, the film grossed only $14.2 million in North America and $598,000 in other territories, for a worldwide gross of $14.8 million. Against a budget of $90 million,the film was a box office bomb, with an estimated loss of $83 million.
Supernova was panned by critics and holds a “Rotten” 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 61 reviews, with the consensus: “This is an insult to the Sci-fi genre with no excitement and bad FX.” The New York Times reviewer Lawrence Van Gelder called it “light on originality and low on suspense though high on design and special effects.” On Metacritic, which uses an average of critics’ reviews, the film holds a 19/100, indicating “overwhelming dislike”.Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “D” on an A+ to F scale.Film Comment praised Hill’s directing and writing work for giving the action “an extraordinary vividness and sense of grim veracity”, and touted the cinematography and visual effects, but strongly criticized Coppola and the cuts he made for weakening the characters and disconnecting the film’s relationships and stylistic unity, resulting in the film being “consigned to the void”.
Four different endings were filmed.
Dialogue by the ship’s computer, Sweetie, in a theatrical ending where it tells Nick and Kaela that the Supernova will either destroy Earth or make it and humankind better, and that Kaela is pregnant, was added later in post-production during one of the re-edits of the film, most probably during the one supervised by Francis Ford Coppola. Original dialogue said only that the supernova will destroy Earth in 257 years and that it’s unstoppable.
When he took over the editing of the film, Francis Ford Coppola put together the zero-gravity sex scene between Angela Bassett and James Spader using outtakes of the zero gravity sex scene between Robin Tunney and Peter Facinelli that happens later in the film, with Tunney’s skin color being digitally darkened. He did this to add more to the relationship between Bassett’s and Spader’s characters.
