Exclusive: Nina Dobrev on her role as ‘Becky the Techie’ in xXx: Return of Xander Cage

2 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Having sat down with Bollywood star Deepika Padukone for the release of xXx: Return of Xander Cage, we also had the pleasure of meeting another talented actress from this all-star cast in Nina Dobrev (probably best known for her role as Elena Gilbert / Katherine Pierce / Amara in TV show The Vampire Diaries), to discuss her role of Becky in the third entry into the popular franchise.

Dobrev talks to us exclusively about her role in the movie, and whether she’s technologically savvy in the same way (spoiler alert: she aint). She also explains to us why she wasn’t allowed to read script, and the challenges in entering in to an established, popular franchise of this nature. She then goes on to tell us about being a fan of original film 15 years ago, why this movie was so fun to make, and on her diverse range of career choices, »

Deepika Padukone on moving to Hollywood with xXx: Return of Xander Cage

4 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Having been fortunate enough to speak to Bollywood megastar Deepika Padukone at the London premiere for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, we also had the pleasure of sitting down with the actress to discuss her role in the popular franchise in more depth.

Padukone, who plays Serena Unger, is making her Hollywood bow with this particular movie, despite having been linked to a number of roles in America in the past. Needless to say, we ask her exactly what it was about this role that appealed to her so greatly.

We also speak about the character and how she fits into this universe, and the freedom the actress had with the role, and implementing her own sensibilities onto the part. She also explains the joy in first reading the script, as a story that thrives in ambiguity, while telling us about her collaboration with the star of the movies, »

“XXX:The Return Of Xander Cage Gives You Little Fuel For Thought” – Subhash K Jha Review

14 January 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

XXX : The Return Of Xander Cage

Starring Vin Diesel, Deepika Padukone

Directed by D J Caruso

D.J Caruso,let’s call him DJ for fun, is a man with a mission. Mission ‘Impassable’. Treading a trickly trippy tactile territory where the slow-drip creativity of the writing team rapidly seeps into the film’s aggressive action rendering it ineffectual and finally redundant, XXX is strictly for fans of Vin Diesel.

They get their money’s worth in his introductory sequence where playing the do-gooder in a Spanish town he steals electrical equipment from on top of a transformer, surf-boards his way through the roads at full speed giving high-fives to the passersby in cars and trucks, and reaches in time to plug-in the community television for a football game for the kids. Awwwwwwww!

Life is all about the simple pleasures of life. XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage could well be one of them, »

Ice Cube Saves The Day In New Promo For xXx: Return Of Xander Cage

13 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Xander Cage isn’t the only Triple X agent poised to make a comeback in this month’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Darius Stone, the former Us Navy Seal not seen since 2005’s woeful action sequel State of the Union, swings back just in time to save the day in this all-new TV spot for D.J. Caruso’s actioner.

Played once again by the inimitable Ice Cube, this is the first official confirmation that Darius Stone will feature in Return of Xander Cage, and we fully expect Samuel L. Jackson’s wise-cracking Agent Gibbons – the driving force behind the super-secret Triple X program – to be the one to unite the likeminded adrenaline junkies in the first place. Vin Diesel’s title lead will need all the help he can muster, too, now that a superweapon called Pandora’s Box – one capable of controlling all of America’s satellites while »

Cube headlined the franchise’s second film, xXx: State of the Union, which did about a fourth as much business at the box office as its 2002 Vin Diesel-led predecessor. The film put the series out of commission for over a decade, but now Xander Cage and fellow xXx are back to save the day.

Some reports over the past few months have claimed that Cube will be returning for the film, but that news remained unconfirmed until now. The rapper »

Simon Brew Jan 13, 2017

Vin Diesel has been contacted already by Paramount about making xXx 4, just as xXx: Return Of Xander Cage launches...

Paramount is gearing up to launch the belated revival of the xXx movie series in a week or two, with xXx: Return Of Xander Cage. Vin Diesel is reprising the title role in the movie. What’s more, given that Diesel is less shy about sequels than he once was, there’s already talk too about an xXx 4.

Vin Diesel says Paramount wants a fourth xXx movie

12 January 2017 1:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to star Vin Diesel, his new film xXx: Return of Xander Cage might not be the end for the franchise.

Speaking to Variety at the film’s London premiere on Tuesday, he mentioned that Paramount – the studio behind the movie – have already expressed desire for a fourth film in the series.

“Well, it’s funny,” Diesel said when the topic was brought up. “I was in the middle of an interview and Brad Grey (who runs Paramount) calls me and says, ‘Will everybody come back to work in May?’ I’m like – everyone’s in interviews right now!”

Paramount have yet to comment themselves on a potential fourth xXx but it seems like the will is there. We’ll just have to see how the world takes to the current flick.

Paramount Reportedly Keen To Bring Back Vin Diesel And The Gang For xXx 4

12 January 2017 7:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could the Return of Xander Cage spark a bona fide franchise revival at Paramount? It appears so, as Vin Diesel is now weighing up the possibility of xXx 4.

The actor, who is currently doing press rounds in anticipation of D.J. Caruso’s action threequel slamming into theaters next week, spoke to Variety about the future of one Xander Cage. And though it’s been more than a decade since Diesel headlined the cult action series, screaming “I live for this shit!” at the top of his lungs, xXx: Return of Xander Cage may well leave the door open for future installments – if Paramount has its way, at least.

Per Variety: “I was in the middle of an interview and Brad Grey — who runs Paramount — calls me and says, ‘Will everybody come back to work in May?’ I’m like – everyone’s in interviews right now!”

xXx To Become The Next Fast & Furious. Will Fourth Flick Film In May? (Does Dom Die In F8?!)

12 January 2017 6:43 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

On January 25th of last year, I shared a report with you regarding xXx: Return of Xander Cage while that project was still in its earliest stages. In that report, I shared with you a pair of rumors that- if true- suddenly made this new xXx far more interesting. While one of them remains merely a rumor (one that we won't know the status of until the film arrives in theaters), the other already seems to be coming true.

Read: "The Vin Diesel xXx Sequel Just Got Bigger"

It would appear that xXx: Return of Xander Cage will definitely not be a one-off, and that Paramount and star Vin Diesel are hoping it becomes the next Fast & Furious franchise. Why do I say that? Because, according to Diesel, Paramount is already trying to lock up the cast to shoot a fourth film in May.

When Vin Diesel returns to the xXx series, he hopes to reinvigorate it the same way he did when he returned to the Fast & Furious franchise. The third film in the series, titled xXx: Return of Xander Cage comes out soon and it features a stellar cast that'll find Diesel surrounded by the likes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Donnie Yen, as well as Deepika Padukone, Toni Collette, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Tony Jaa, Kris Wu, Michael Bisping, Rory McCann, Nicky Jam, Neymar Jr., and a returning Samuel L. Jackson.

At the film's London premiere, Diesel made an extra special entrance since a limousine simply wouldn't suit Xander Cage. The international superstar arrived in a helicopter, landing in front a giant, flaming xXx logo.
