(2015)

Wool is set in subterranean silos that house the remnants of humanity on a postapocalyptic Earth, but the title is anything but an underground hit: It's become Amazon's 29th best-selling Kindle e-book title this year, and its 30th best-selling fiction book for 2012. So with Ridley Scott and screenwriting giant Steve Zaillian producing, and now what appears to be an intriguing U.K. director in Blakeson coming aboard, it's time to start paying attention to Wool or risk feeling … sheepish.
