Vin Diesel Leaps Into Action In First xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage Trailer

Played to a similarly remixed version of “Voodoo Child” that accompanied the reveal trailer of Aleksander Bach’s middling Hitman: Agent 47, Paramount has premiered the bat-shit insane new trailer for xXx 3 that heralds The Return of Xander Cage, Vin Diesel’s musclebound adrenaline junkie that clearly hasn’t lost his edges in the intervening years since the cult actioner of 2002.

Tethered with a January release date – often the dumping ground for Hollywood studios – and a fairly generic, run-of-the-mill trailer, it’s difficult to muster any excitement for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and that’s even factoring in the callbacks to Diesel’s breakout as the rogue agent.

Alas, we’ll reserve full judgement until the turn of the year. The Return of Xander Cage boasts a cast that encompasses Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, Toni Collette, the returning Samuel L. Jackson, Furious 7 co-star Tony Jaa, Conor McGregor, Nina Dobrev and Andrey Ivchenko as the film’s big bad.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will unleash Vin Diesel’s maniac stuntman when D.J. Caruso’s threequel makes a beeline for theaters on January 20, 2017.

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.
