Can you believe it’s been nearly fifteen years since xXx has graced the big screen? The real xXx, Xander Cage, that is – I think we all like to pretend Ice Cube’s Darius Stone doesn’t exist. Well he’s back, baby! The first teaser trailer for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is here for your viewing pleasure.

There’s not much in the way of an official plot synopsis yet, but here’s what we’ve got so far via Coming Soon:

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 (Donnie Yen) 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: Return of Xander Cage aims to raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

Oh Xander Cage, I’ve missed you so much. Let’s be honest: there’s not much to do here besides sit back and watch everything on screen defy reality (logic and gravity included), and that’s exactly what I love about it; and not only that – the movie looks to be reveling in it as well.

This looks like plain stupid fun that isn’t taking itself seriously, thereby undermining the whole movie in the process, and I can’t wait to see it. Oh, and did you see the cast it’s assembled? I think we can be guaranteed there are some top-notch action scenes heading our way with the likes of Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa on board.

What do you think?

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is due for release in the US on 20 January 2017. Directed by D.J. Caruso, it stars Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Rory McCann, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Toni Collette, Deepika Padukone and Michael Bisping.
