Luther: The Fallen Sun is the long-awaited follow-up to the beloved crime series. Directed by Jamie Payne - who directed several episodes of the show - and written by Neil Cross, it's an entertaining and captivating movie, but doesn't go far enough in terms of story or pacing to make a significant addition to the franchise. Nevertheless, fans should still find something enjoyable here regardless.

Directed by Jamie Payne

Idris Elba's brilliant but disgraced detective John Luther ended his fifth and final season on Luther in 2019 with a heartbreaking goodbye, leaving viewers wondering what would come next for the character. However, now several years later, Elba is back in a new Netflix movie based on the beloved series called Luther: The Fallen Sun.

Directed by Jamie Payne, this big-screen version of Luther is set to bring back some of its most unforgettable moments. Starring Idris Elba, Cynthia Erivo and Andy Serkis, it also brings Dermot Crowley back as Martin Schenk - head of the police department on Luther - from his previous appearances.

This story follows a serial killer terrorizing London. As Luther sits behind bars, haunted by his previous failure to capture the cyber psychopath, he decides to break out of prison in order to track down and capture him once and for all.

In this crime thriller, David Robey (Andy Serkis) is a tech billionaire who uses in-home surveillance technology to manipulate and murder civilians. As Luther and his team attempt to track down Robey, they discover he has his sights set on Alice Morgan (Cynthia Erivo), the daughter of their boss.

This gritty take on the beloved TV detective is an exciting ride that delivers some stunning images of London at night. It's a must-see for any fan of the show, and you don't even need to have watched all five seasons to appreciate it!

Written by Neil Cross

Over the past decade, Neil Cross has achieved great success as a screenwriter for both film and television - creating the detective series Luther which premiered on BBC in 2010 with Idris Elba starring. Additionally, he wrote for popular spy drama Spooks and is currently writing episodes for Doctor Who.

Born in Bristol in 1969, he lived in Edinburgh, Brighton, Leeds and London before relocating to New Zealand with his wife and two sons. Since then he has written several novels such as Always the Sun, Burial and Captured; plus his bestselling memoir Heartland.

He was longlisted for the Booker Prize with Always the Sun and nominated by PEN/Ackerley Award for literary autobiography of excellence. Now published in the UK with Captured, he's currently working on his next novel which he hopes will become another bestseller.

Cross began his career as a novelist but quickly discovered that he enjoyed adapting his works for television. He served as lead scriptwriter on series six and seven of Spooks, as well as writing episodes for Doctor Who. His creation, Luther (starring Idris Elba), has become hugely popular in Britain and now enjoys cult followings across America. Cross is currently working on five more series of Luther and pre-apocalyptic crime drama Hard Sun; both set in New Zealand with many more projects planned in the near future.

Produced by Peter Chernin

After successfully coordinating their working schedules, series creator Neil Cross and actor Idris Elba have finally made the jump to film. The result is LUTHER: THE FALLEN SUN, an adaptation that picks up where the last episode of the TV series left off.

The film stars Idris Elba, Andy Serkis, Cynthia Erivo and Dermot Crowley and is directed by Jamie Payne (who directed the BBC series as well). Producers include Peter Chernin (The Greatest Showman; War for the Planet of the Apes), Jenno Topping and David Ready.

Based on the TV show, LUTHER: THE FALLEN SUN follows disgraced police detective John Luther as he escapes prison to hunt down a monstrous serial killer terrorizing London. The killer is blackmailing people using their secret online shames, and it's up to Luther to take him down.

As always, the actor excels at portraying a damaged and emotionally scarred cop. He delivers his trademark one-liners with as much wit as ever while still demonstrating his psychological insight when pursuing down criminals and their victims.

Fallen Sun captures the tension and intensity of the series with its focus on Luther and a cyber-psychopath in an intense cat-and-mouse game. The actors' chemistry as well as the plot make this an impressive standalone addition to the franchise that shouldn't be missed.

Starring Dermot Crowley

Dermot Crowley is a familiar face to fans of Idris Elba's television series Luther. In five seasons, Crowley played Martin Schenk, Luther's former boss and close friend, for the BBC.

In the new movie, Luther (Elba) breaks out of prison to track down a vicious serial killer terrorizing London. While his attempts at capture fail, his determination to solve this case remains undamped.

Jamie Payne directed and written "Dune 2," directed by franchise creator Neil Cross. Cross and Elba also produced alongside Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, David Ready, Dan Finlay, Brendan Ferguson, Miki Emmerich, Kris Thykier and Priscilla Parish as executive producers on the project.

Meanwhile, a tech billionaire moonlights as a serial killer who uses surveillance technology to manipulate and kill civilians. This new threat presents Luther with an uphill battle that may prove difficult to defeat.

As a longtime fan of the show, I can't wait to see how this movie turns out! It's been awhile since we've seen Detective Smith in action, but this movie will give us an exciting glimpse of what we have been missing.

Fans of the series will be pleased to know they won't have to wait too long for this movie, as it will be available to stream on Netflix soon! Starting March 10, 2017, viewers can stream it for free! Don't miss out - be sure to check it out today!

Starring Cynthia Erivo

The popular BBC series Luther is being brought to the big screen. Directed by Jamie Payne and written by Neil Cross, the film will premiere globally on Netflix tomorrow morning and star Idris Elba, Cynthia Erivo and Andy Serkis in leading roles.

Elba returns as Detective John Luther, who gets falsely accused of murder and then flees. He is an ingenious police officer with a remarkable aptitude for understanding criminal minds. Unfortunately, in the movie he's imprisoned due to his unconventional methods at work and haunted by an unsolved case connected to wealthy villain David Robey (Andy Serkis).

Erivo, who won a Tony Award for her performance as Celie Harris in the Broadway revival of The Color Purple, is joining the cast of Luther: The Fallen Sun. Her previous films include Steve McQueen's Viola Davis-starring heist thriller Widows and Bad Times at the El Royale, which earned her an Academy Award nomination.

Her character in the movie remains unknown, but her presence adds a unique perspective to an already remarkable cast. The trailer for the movie teases some scenes featuring Erivo's character in prison, including one where she confronts Luther after he escapes. However, this plotline is not strictly followed; instead, it explores how Luther's time in prison and his pursuit for an evil villain are connected.
