Vin Diesel Rides a Motorcycle on Water in the New 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' Trailer

The actor revives another movie franchise with extreme stunts and a cast that includes Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, and Rory McCann (aka The Hound from 'Game of Thrones').

Xander Cage is back—and so is Vin Diesel's legendary white denim vest.

The new trailer for xXx: Return Of Xander Cage dropped on Tuesday night, featuring Diesel at at his musclebound best, as the Fast and Furious actor returns to the franchise more than 10 years after last appearing in xXx in 2002.

Diesel, of course, stars as Cage, the “extreme athlete-turned government operative” who returns to the fold to take on the big bad guy too intense for one NSA agent, Augustus Eugene Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson, in his silliest-named role since 'Mace Windu').

In this case it’s a pretty badass bad guy—Rogue One stormtrooper bully and Ip Man martial arts star Donnie Yen—who gets his hands on a military super-weapon. Cage puts the "xXx-treme" in extreme sports—in the trailer, he zips down a mountainous jungle on skis, skateboards on the side of a moving bus, and rides a motorcyle on the ocean like a jet ski—yes, he pulls off wheelies on water—all before jumping out of an exploding plane:

This movie appears to have just the right amount of action and ridiculousness to work. It also has quite the supporting cast: Martial artist and Furious 7 actor Tony Jaa shows up along with MMA fighter Michael Bisping, former NFL star Tony Gonzalez, soccer star Neymar, Rory McCann (aka Sandor "The Hound" Clegane in Game of Thrones), and John Wick 2 actress Ruby Rose.

Diesel’s fashion choices are characteristically top-notch, too—along with his awesome vest, he wears a winter coat with a huge fur collar, much like the one he wore during his first outing as Xander Cage in xXx.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage, directed by D.J. Caruso and starring Diesel, Yen, Jackson, Jaa, Rose, McCann, Deepika Padukone, Nina Dobrev, Kris Wu, and Ariadna Gutiérrez, will be released January 20, 2017.
