Watch Vin Diesel in First 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' Trailer

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

"Guns, girls, global domination." Those words, spoken by Ruby Rose in the first trailer for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, provide an apt description for an action movie that looks like it will tip the scales of believability from its very first frame.

That was also a hallmark of xXx back in 2002, which introduced Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports athlete who was recruited by the U.S. government for a secret mission.

 

Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) handled the initial recruiting of Cage, who did indeed have a number of wild adventures. The sequel, xXx: State of Union, followed three years later and revolved around another agent (Ice Cube). More than 10 years later, Cage has been left for dead, but as the first trailer for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage reveals, Cage is very much alive.

 

As the opening moments show, Augustus Gibbons is evidently once again on recruitment duty. Cage returns to action for a new assignment with a new team of associates who are well-versed in outlandish behavior. The cast includes Donnie Yen, Nina Dobrev, Tony Jaa, Deepika Padukone, Ruby Rose, Kris Wu and Toni Collette. D.J. Caruso directed; he's known for Disturbia, Eagle Eye and I Am Number Four.

The trailer debuted on Diesel's official Facebook page. Among more than 12,000 comments on Diesel's post, Facebook's Mark Zuckenberg left the following message:

Who are we to argue? We can't wait either. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will smash into theaters on January 20, 2017.
