Vin Diesel is embracing his status as an action icon once again in the newly released trailer for his upcoming thriller, ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage.’ The Screen Actors Guild Award-nominated actor is showcased feeling good to be reprising his title role, as Xander embarks on a new adventure, in the film’s latest clip.

‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage,’ which was directed by D. J. Caruso, is set to be released in-theaters by Paramount Pictures on January 20, 2017. It’s the third film in the action adventure film series, and is a direct sequel to the original installment in the franchise, 2002’s ‘xXx,’ which was also led by Diesel.

‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ will follow extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Diesel) as he comes out of self-imposed exile, after he was believed to be long dead. He’s set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. After 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.
