Go Behind The Scenes Of xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage With New Set Video

By

Before the return of Dominic Toretto in April, Vin Diesel will be staging a comeback for another of his action heroes in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. No prizes for guessing who.

Hot on the heels of last week’s trailer, which evoked memories of box office flop Hitman: Agent 47 in all the wrong ways, Diesel has now shared a new video from set, taking you behind the scenes of D.J. Caruso’s (I Am Number Four) franchise revival.

Ensuring that Vin Diesel was back in the driving seat naturally proved instrumental in getting the third installment off the ground, particularly after the A-lister remained on the sidelines for the Ice Cube-fronted State of the Union, but Samuel L. Jackson returning as NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons is also a massive coup.

He’s absent in this set video, however, which instead places newcomer Deepika Padukone front and center. Rounding out the cast list are Toni Collette, Diesel’s Furious 7 co-star Tony Jaa, (the notorious) Conor McGregor, Nina Dobrev and Andrey Ivchenko as the film’s big bad.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage slams into theaters in time for January 20, 2017. That’s not exactly a release date that screams confidence from Paramount, but it’ll be interesting to see how Caruso’s feature fares with audiences.

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Packed with the series’ signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, “xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE” will raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.
