14XXX: Return of Xander Cage

Riskiest Box Office Bets - XXX Return of Xander Cage

Release: 1/20

Budget: Unknown

Early in his career, Vin Diesel was making a name for himself in the world of Hollywood action movies. He already had Pitch Black and of course, The Fast and the Furious (which is on its eight installment - The Fate of the Furious) under his belt

but XXX was a completely different type of action movie - it was an Xtreme Xction movie. The film proved to be highly profitable at the box office, though the sequel starring Ice Cube failed to attract the same audience.

Fourteen years later, Vin Diesel is back in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and based on the action-filled (and absurd) trailer, he's once again brought his love for all things extreme with him. No doubt this franchise is hoping to get the same box office bump The Fast and the Furious Franchise did when Diesel returned in movie number four. As far as January films go, this one looks like it could be fairly standard high-budget/low-production/corny affair. It'll need to compete with Underworld: Blood Wars and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter for viewers, though.
