He cut a suave figure in dark suit trousers, a blue shirt and a red tie, which he styled with his famous longline coat as he once again embodied Luther.

And the Luther movie is set to be as jampacked with dramatic scenes as ever as one photograph shows a concerned Idris holding up his hands in a busy city setting. 

His character Luther is also seen exploring more challenging climes and breaking away from its traditional London setting as he was seen making his way through a snowy, mountainous landscape.

Another shot shows Idris standing on what appeared to be underground train tracks, while a final snap saw him dramatically walking through red lights.

It comes after Idris gave fans a taste of what to expect in the new movie, revealing that it will follow on from his ‘haunted’ character being sent to prison in the 2019 finale.

He told Entertainment Weekly: ‘He’s done so much to bend the law in order to catch the bad guys that he’s ended up in jail. 

‘So that’s where we start the story. He’s contemplating what he’s going to do with his life.’

Meanwhile, Idris also spoke to Empire Magazine about the ‘dangers’ of moving the psychological crime thriller from television to film. 

He said: ‘It’s really dangerous when expanding from television to film to throw a lot of money at it, and for that moment to change the characteristics of the show.
