New ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ Trailer Is Flat-Out Insane

Paramount has released a new trailer for Vin Diesel’s high-octane action threequel XxX: Return of Xander Cage, and it’s hysterical. The sequel that no one really wanted or asked for is directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) and brings back the thought to be dead character of Xander Cage, played by Diesel, hence the subtitle.

The original xXx and character Xander Cage was the answer to the early 2000s extreme sports craze, with Cage subsequently being a rogue extreme athlete who sought out the most hits on YouTube, eventually turned super spy for a secret organization. While that sounds and is pretty much outlandish as can be, I adore the original movie. I was that age where all I wanted to do was skateboard or ride dirt bikes, resulting in me having a damn good time with xXx. But unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the threequel. I had mentioned earlier that the trailer is hysterical, and in no way is that a good thing.

I’ll admit, there’s some cool action sequences, but the editing and dialogue featured in the trailer is horrible, so much so that it’s funny. I can look passed editing for the most part, but dialogue is what really sucks you in. I was basically just shaking my head as I was watching it because this movie and the character of Xander Cage have pretty much become a spoof of themselves. I was looking forward to Return of Xander Cage, expecting another one of Diesel’s “so bad it’s good” action movies. But after this trailer, I’m completely turned off of the idea of Diesel’s return to his extreme athlete turned super spy. Thank you movie gods for creating something like John Wick

Regardless of what I say, take a look at the trailer for yourself below. Are you into this insane action movies? What did you think of the trailer? D.J. Caruso’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage rides into theaters on January 20th, 2017 and stars Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Deepika Padukone, and Samuel L. Jackson.

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.
