The trailer for Luther: The Fallen Sun was unveiled ahead of Idris Elba's much-awaited return as the eccentric detective. It has been four years since we last saw the gritty detective. Do you remember how DCI John Luther ended up in prison in the hit BBC series? The BBC series aired in 2010 and ran for five long seasons. We saw how his job always came first, often at the expense of the other aspects of his life, and now he is back! The trailer shows a very brutal prison in the beginning, but of course, it's no Shawshank Redemption that the whole movie will be set in prison. The Trailer shows Luther's escape from the Prison with the help of his former boss Martin Schenk played by Dermot Crowley and a new addition to the cast Odette Raine played by Cynthia Erivo.


So who's the antagonist? We sure know that Luther ain't it. The villain this time is cyber psychopath and part-time serial killer David Robey played by Andy Serkis, who is best known for his role in Lord of the Rings. He is now out of the prison, and we hear him say,  "Let the nightmare come, 'cos I'm ready.".

Last month the announcement came that Luther The Fallen Sun would be released in select cinemas on February 24, and it will land on Netflix on March 10. 

This could be the start of a series if this movie's reception pleases everybody. Idris Elba, however, said that he doesn't want to be Luther forever. 


"John is a leading character in a film that he's the hero of. That's the comparison I'm making. Some films do them well – Bond is one of them. But my ambition for it is to have that sort of scale, that reverence," he explained.

"I want people to be like, 'Ooh! Luther, the first film? Wicked'. And to continue that. And then maybe later down the line, when I'm too old, someone else will step in to play John."


Here's a refresher for you, the series ended with a very passionate confrontation between Alice and, of course, Luther about the former's romantic killings. She was previously said to be dead but has now returned and wants to cause more trouble, way more than they can handle. However, by the end of the show she was defeated and, this time, dead for real. However, Luther finds himself arrested, and that's where the show ends. You Can Watch Luther: The Fallen Sun on Netflix, this 10th March.
