Vin Diesel gets the girl in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

In what seems like a direct response to the first trailer of Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, the star is front and centre of the new one.

This time, Deepika seems to have more screen time than Xander Cage himself. Vin Diesel looks right at home in the action film, the third in the xXx series (the second starring Diesel in the lead role as the extreme sportsman/spy).

For his return in the title role, Xander Cage recruits a team to help him out at the advice of Samuel L Jackson. Each member will have a special skill that will be explored in the film, but Deepika’s character Serena looks like the wildcard of the group.

Another notable takeaway from the trailer is that Deepika has delivered her lines in her natural Indian accent.

The tone of the film is taking shape now and it looks like the third xXx is going to be a goofy action movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously - which is just right.

Director DJ Caruso’s film, which also stars Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose and many other popular international stars releases on January 17.
