Luther Season 3 Trailer and a Movie Rumor!

You don't want to spoil his good mood, or so says Idris Elba in the Season 3 trailer for BBC's Luther. While the U.S. won't get to see the next season of Luther until September, Luther begins July 2 on BBC One. Fans got even more of a thrill when Luther's own Idris Elba, producers Phillipa Giles and Claire Bennett, and director Sam Miller dropped the bomb that a Luther movie might be in the works. Elba said the film would be an origin story of sorts for the enigmatic and angry DSI John Luther. Another pleasant nugget from the BAFTA panel which was shared on Twitter? Idris Elba was a fan of Columbo! We don't think we see any of Columbo in Luther though, do you?

Will you be watching the Season 3 premiere July 2, or are you stuck like us at CrimeHQ waiting for the September release? Would you go see a Luther movie?

    A new season is good news. I’ll be stuck waiting till September also but now I can’t wait! Luther is one of my favorites. Great dark dark show, and Idris Elba, of course, is terrific. And yes, I hope they do a movie. I’d see that in a second.

    I second what Scott said.

    I’ll definately be watching in September; Luther and his brooding detective work is a must-see here. I’d go in a second to see a movie starring this character portrayed by a great actor like Elba.
