In the new film, a gruesome serial killer (Andy Serkis) terrorises London while brilliant but disgraced detective John Luther (Idris Elba) sits behind bars.
Haunted by his failure to capture the cyber psychopath who now taunts him, Luther decides to break out of prison to finish the job by any means necessary. Cynthia Erivo, Jess Liaudin, and Dermot Crowley co-star.
Emmy nominee Jamie Payne directs from a screenplay written by series creator Neil Cross. Netflix has confirmed the film will premiere on February 24th in select theaters before being available for all subscribers on March 10th.
