The official trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the third outing in the franchise dropped earlier this week and it looks absolutely ridiculous. From skiing through the jungle, to riding a dirt bike over waves in the ocean, everything about this film is completely absurd and it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun giggling all the way through it. The tagline for the film tells audiences — especially those not familiar with the franchise from over a decade ago — everything they need to know in order to not take this wild cheese fest seriously: “Kick some ass, get the girl, and try to look dope while you doing it”.
The film stars Vin Diesel returning to the role of Xander Cage, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Toni Collette, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Tony Jaa, and Samuel L. Jackson with a script written by Chad St. John and F. Scott Frazier, directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye).
xXx: Return of Xander Cage hits theaters 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.
