Hemdale Film Corporation (sometimes called Hemdale Releasing Corporation or Hemdale Pictures Corporation), known as Hemdale Communications after
1993, was an independent film production company and distributor founded in Londonin the early 1970s by David Hemmingsand John Daly, headed by John Daly and Derek Gibson. It later became well known for the production of " The Terminator" (1984), " Hoosiers" (1986) and "Platoon" (1986), which all had the Orion logo instead of the Hemdale logo. Hemdale Film Corporation was later swallowed by Orion Picturesin 1995.
1988, Hemdale released a collection of many video cassette titles released by Hemdale Home Video around the United States of America. In 1995, with Orion's acquistion of Hemdale, Hemdale Home Video was brought by Orion Home Video.
After the studio's closing, the Hemdale library was incorporated into the
Orion Picturesoutput now owned by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Orion ironically originally released many of Hemdale's films. One key exception is " The Last Emperor", a Hemdale production originally issued by Columbia Pictures, but whose rights are now held by its producer, Jeremy Thomas.
The company's last new credit was for the Virgin Games video game adaptation of The Terminator, which showed up on the game's start up screen as "Hemdale's The Terminator" in text on the scrolling logo, despite all box art calling it "The Terminator".
