XXX: The Return of Xander Cage Theatrical Trailer

Get ready to go to the edge of extreme once again as Paramount Pictures releases the new theatrical trailer for XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. View trailer below.

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: 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.

Hmmm….I don’t know what to think of this trailer. While there’s plenty of explosive action and thrills throughout, I have a feeling like its going to be a bland sequel adventure, with action stunts trumping over story elements. I mean I know the XXX movies were never known for their strong narratives, but the franchise seems to be going more “over the top” with this latest installment. As I said before, I do like Vin Diesel as an actor, but I would rather see him see him as Dominic Toretto in another Fast and Furious movie. To me, he’ll always be more memorable as Torretto more so than Xander Cage. Will this be successful in theaters… probably not as its being released in January (usually a dead month). Personally, I don’t expect a whole lot from this beyond nifty stunt and the standard action nuances for the genre.

  • I gotta say I thought the trailer is laughably bad. I do get that their is supposed to be a level of silliness to it. But like you said, Vin is no Toretto here. He just looks and sounds goofy.

    • Haha…definitively agree with you. Its probably going to become like how the like how Expendables 2 was like (a lot of action, mediocre story, laughable dialogue), but at least Expendables 2 was a fun movie. XXX 3 just looks bad.
