The last time anyone used the phrase “Triple X” outside of the adult film context, the year was 2005. Revolution Studios launched a spy sequel called XXX: State of the Union about a convict turned secret agent that tries to stop Secretary of Defense Willem Dafoe from launching a coup d’etat of the United States government at – Wait for it! – the State of the Union. But something was missing… What was it? A coherent story? Yup. Relatable characters? Definitely. Wicked stunts? We’re getting warmer. Vin Diesel? There it is! Rectifying that problem is the upcoming XXX sequel, which is called, appropriately enough, XXX: Return of Xander Cage. And now, there’s a trailer.

You may recall that Xander was killed off screen in State of the Union, but now there’s a new threat that requires “someone who can walk into a tornado and come out the other side like it was a damn gentle breeze!” Also, “We need people with the skills and the attitude to take on threats we don’t even know exist.” Hm, makes sense. Let’s review the plot synopsis again:

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.

XXX: Return of Xander Cage stars Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Tony Jaa, and Nina Dobrev, with Samuel L. Jackson returning to the franchise too as XXX’s M figure Augustus Gibbons. XXX: Return of Xander Cage will be in theaters everywhere on January 20, 2017.
