After a promising teaser, the full theatrical trailer for “xXX: The Return of Xander Cage” has been released today by Paramount Pictures – offering us more glimpses as Toni Collette’s character. It’s fair to say she’s playing Xander’s boss. The fun of Return of Xander Cage is that it almost prides itself with looking exceedingly dumb. Mind you, this is only the trailer and it features Diesel’s former extreme sports guy spy somehow surfing gigantic ocean waves on a motorcycle, skiing through the jungle, and pulling some sick moves by skateboarding across the side of a moving bus. If it didn’t have a winking spirit it could come across as tedious, but the trailer has a gleeful anarchy about it that guarantees the movie won’t take itself too seriously. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

It’s been three months since we saw the first trailer for Paramount’s highly-anticipated XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, which is set to hit theaters next January. Tomorrow we’ll get to see the second full trailer, but until then, we have 12 new character posters to check out. These posters feature Vin Diesel’s Xander Cage, Donnie Yen’s Xiang, Rory McCann’s Torch, Tony Jaa’s Talon, Deepika Padukone’s Serena, Kris Wu’s Nicks, soccer star Neymar Jr., Nicky Jam as Lazarus, Toni Collette as Jane Marke, UFC star Michael Bisping as Hawk, Nina Dobrev as Becky and Ruby Rose as Adele.

This big screen adventure brings back Vin Diesel’s iconic character Xander Cage to the big screen, 14 years after his first adventure. The original xXx fared well at the box office, taking in $142.1 million domestic and $277.4 million worldwide from a $70 million budget. Despite the initial movie’s success, Vin Diesel did not return for the sequel, 2005’s XXX: State of the Union, which starred Ice Cube as Augustus Gibbons’ new recruit, Darius Stone. That sequel didn’t fare quite as well at the box office, taking in just $26.8 million domestically and $71 million worldwide. Both Xander Cage and Augustus Gibbons are back with a slew of new cast members in XXX 3.
