'xXx 3: The Return Of Xander Cage' Trailer

"Damn, it feels good to be back," says Vin Diesel in a new trailer tease for xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

The actor shared the preview Sunday night on Facebook with the simple yet excited caption, "IT IS AWESOME."

Diesel reprises his role as an extreme athlete-turned-superspy in the latest installment, following the 2002 and 2005 films. Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson are joined by Thai action star Tony Jaa, Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone and Orange Is the New Black breakout Ruby Rose.

D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) is directing the reboot, which was written by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen), with revisions by F. Scott Frazier (Collide).
