The New Trailer For xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE Kicks Ass And Looks Dope Doing It


...And because 2017 wouldn't be a normal year with just one Vin Diesel movie, director D.J. Caruso is poised to release the long-awaited trilogical installment to the daredevil action franchise, xXx: The Return Of Zander Cage. Bearing in mind, of course, the utter flop that came with the 2005 sequel that followed Rob Cohen's 2002 original, the film does carry some weight in having to pick up the slack. 

Well, you do get Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role once more from the earlier two films, as well as a list of beautiful femme fatales played by Deepika Padukone, Ruby Rose and Nina Dobrev. What? Not enough? Ohhh k ok, how about we throw in the first time pairing of Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa, along with UFC Middleweight champion Michael Bisping for good measure? Sound neat? Well, all that and more as a reward for our patience can now be sampled from in the very first teaser which you can view below!

SYNOPSIS:
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.
Paramount is releasing the film on January 20, 2017 which ought to whet the appetite to a spectacular degree for Diesel fans ahead of a certain other franchise blockbuster in the following April. Watch the trailer right now and share with friends!

    1. Nope, I didn't expect anything at all. Because at the end of the day it's only a trailer, and for a film encircled primarily around Vin Diesel. It's not a Tony Jaa film or a Donnie Yen film or a Nina Dobrev or Michael Bisping movie. At best, those days, if at all, are yet to come, but not on January 20 at least.
