'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' Trailer Spotlights Extreme Stunts of Vin Diesel, Tony Jaa

"The world has changed — the war we're fighting today needs a different kind of soldier."

As promised, the teaser trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage is out, and it's action-packed.

In under 90 seconds, Vin Diesel is seen skiing through a jungle, skateboarding through high-speed traffic, and riding a motorcycle in the ocean — and those are just the stunts of the titular character.

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).

Paramount will release xXx: The Return of Xander Cage on Jan. 20, 2017.
