Paramount has dropped the first teaser for the latest sequel in the xXx franchise, The Return Of Xander Cage, and as the title suggests, main man Vin Diesel is back sporting the tats and ‘tude that we’ve come to expect. The sequel sees Cage come out of exile to take on a deadly alpha warrior named Xiang (Donnie Yen) in pursuit of an unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box.

Check out the trailer above!

After sitting the second chapter out in favour of Ice Cube, Diesel returns to try and kick-start another franchise for himself. I’m not entirely sure that we needed another installment, but good on Diesel for not just coasting on billion-grossing Fast & The Furious sequels for the rest of his career. DJ Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) is taking the reins for this spectacle, and Samuel L. Jackson, Toni ColletteNina Dobrev, Ruby Rose and Tony Jaa are along for the extreme ride as well.

The teaser has all the things you’d expect from the movie; there’s guns, there’s girls, there’s girls with guns, and… skis? I’m all for new and interesting action sequences, but you can’t tell me that lugging skis into a jungle is a time-saving or particularly stealthy exercise! Anyway, we’ll get more of a sense of what the “plot” is in future trailers, but for those waiting with baited breath for this, you’re welcome.

xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE hits theatres January 19, 2017.
