Fourteen years after he first debuted as Xander Cage in the high adrenaline film xXx, to the franchise in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The film is set to next year, and in order to get us appropriately amped for its release the first trailer dropped today.

The trailer was released via Vin’s , and was so popular it even attracted the attention of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg who expressed his excitement about the long-awaited threequel:


As with the two previous xXx films, xXx: Return of Xander Cage looks , and I have to be perfectly honest: some of the scenes look downright mind blowing. Don’t take my word for it though, check out the trailer and then join me for a thorough breakdown of the best bits below:

Recovered yet? Good, now let’s take a look at it all over again!

We’re introduced to the trailer with Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role) explaining that even though we’re supposedly safer than ever before, due to the world constantly changing that’s simply not true.

To keep up with the threats of this ever changing world, Gibbons reveals we need to different type of soldier to fight it. Cue Vin Diesel skiing in a jungle?!

As we’re bombarded with shots of people fighting, flipping trucks and using welding torches to break into buildings, Gibbons impresses that they “need people with the skills and attitude to take on threats we don’t even know exist.”

We’re also treated to look at some of the bad-ass ladies of the film, including Ruby Rose as Adele Wolff,

Dressed in all-white, Toni Collette’s character then poetically says that they “need someone who can walk into a tornado, and come out the other side like it was a damn gentle breeze.” Spoilers, Toni: that person is Xander Cage.

While Gibbons takes it to a basic level: “Let me simplify it for you: kick some ass and try to look dope while doing it.”

As Xander grins and tells Gibbons he “can definitely make that work” the trailer fades to title cards, but not before Ruby Rose announces what must be the best tagline for any action film to date: “Guns, girls, global domination. Xander Cage is back.”

Hell yes he is!
