This past week on indieWIRE, the Motion Picture Academy shocked the industry, Todd Haynes dished on "Mildred Pierce," Greta Gerwig went Hollywood and much more.

A Surprise CEO

The Motion Picture Academy made waves this week when it announced that Dawn Hudson will succeed Bruce Davis as the Academy's new CEO. Thompson on Hollywood reported on how this change will shake up the Academy.

Malcolm Venville Dissects a Scene

In his own words, "Henry's Crime" director Malcom Venville analyzed a climactic scene exclusively for indieWIRE. Click here to watch the pivotal scene and read Venville's description of how it all came together.

Shorts!

The annual Aspen Shortfest launched this week. Kim Adelman provided a preview of the fest. Her highlight? Colin Firth playing a pesky neighbor in Rupert Friend’s “Steve.”

Cinereach Gets Generous

Cinereach unveiled 13 features that will receive $400,000 in grants. Click here to see the names of the lucky projects.

“In the Works” Projects

This week’s “In the Works” highlighted five more projects worth getting excited about, including documentaries about artists Ai Weiwei and Kenny Scharf, “Pig,” a film set to premiere at this year’s Nashville Film Festival, and “Facing East,” Will Swensen’s directorial debut.

Interviews: Todd Haynes, Max Winkler, Joe Wright and Gil Cates Jr.

HBO's five-part miniseries "Mildred Pierce" is generating some of the greatest buzz of Todd Hayne's career. In the first installment of a two-part interview with indieWIRE, Haynes reflected on working within the realm of television, comparisons between "Pierce" and "Far From Heaven" and the power of the melodrama.

Max Winkler, son of Henry, makes his directorial debut with "Ceremony." Winkler sat down with indieWIRE to discuss his love for the Big Apple, replacing his lead actor and ignoring his father's advice.

Coinciding with the release of the violent, action-packed “Hanna,” director Joe Wright met with indieWIRE to comment on his departure from the more restrained period films he is known for. “I wanted to smash it all up a bit, really,” said Wright. “I felt like deconstructing myself and my filmmaking.”

Over in Dallas, indieWIRE caught up with director Gil Cates Jr., who’s new film “Lucky” was picked up for distribution a day ahead of its world premiere at the 2011 Dallas International Film Festival. Click here to learn what inspired him to helm the dark comedy that stars Colin Hanks.

Reviews: "Arthur," "Meet Monica Velour," "Hanna" and "To Die Like a Man"

Mumblecore queen Greta Gerwig made the leap to Hollywood this week with her role in "Arthur." Eric Kohn dissected just how much she adds to the Russell Brand remake.

“Fantasy Meets Reality,” reads the tagline on the poster for “Meet Monica Velour,” which stars Kim Cattrall as a washed up porn star. Check out indieWIRE’s review to see if Cattrall succeeded at taking a turn to the trashy side.

João Pedro Rodrigues’ “To Die Like a Man” has finally found its way to U.S. theaters. indieWIRE’s Eric Kohn decided the film was worth the wait. “It took some time, but ‘To Die Like a Man’ deserves your attention for showcasing a filmmaker with the capacity for bold narrative trickery that doesn’t come at the expense of emotional investment.”

One of the most anticipated films to hit this year, Joe Wright's first foray into action territory, "Hanna," was reviewed by both Eric Kohn and Leonard Maltin. The general consensus? It rocks.

Trailers: "Melancholia" and "Another Earth" Duke it Out

Eric Kohn paired up the just-released trailer for Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia" with another one for the Sundance sci-fi breakout "Another Earth." Watch both here and decide which one has a leg up.

Fans of Ryan Gosling (and his abs) might want to take a peek at the just-released trailer for the romantic comedy "Crazy Stupid Love," from the team that made "I Love You Phillip Morris." For some more ab action, check out Ryan Reynolds in the full "Green Lantern" WonderCon extended trailer.
