Is it just us, or is it amusing that the clip that the studio sent us for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, has Vin Diesel skiing through a forest of trees… trees that resemble… GROOT! The clip is actually very impressive, but it won’t be long until the internet mashes this footage up with several line readings of “I am Groot.”
Here’s what Paramount has to say about the upcoming blockbuster which we know is all hype and bullshit and we’ll bitch about it then we’ll see the movie anyway, probably on a long flight where movies are free and then we’ll admit that we “kind of liked it.” At least, that’s our prediction. Now… the prexXx release!
“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-a*s attitude, “xXx: 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.”
