Vin Diesel Appearing At Brazil Comic Con To Promote xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

To kick off the marketing campaign for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, the film's superstar, Vin Diesel, and his co-stars Ruby Rose and Nina Dobrev are headed to Sao Paulo for Brazil's Comic Con Experience. They'll be the featured guests at the Paramount Pictures panel, taking place on Thursday, December 1, and will be bringing with them exclusive footage from the highly-anticipated film.

On Sunday, during a Facebook Live video, Diesel hyped-up the appearance and let it be known that he'll be traveling to the country (he filmed scenes there for 2011's Fast Five) in the next twenty-four hours.

"Tomorrow we start our tour by going to Brazil," Diesel says. "So, this week we'll be in Brazil. And I was fortunate to be a part of the San Diego Comic Con; I was fortunate to experience the New York Comic Con. Never did I think I would be invited to the Brazil Comic Con; and that's what this week is. And so, I'm very-very excited to show parts of XXX[: The Return of Xander Cage], the new XXX — which I'm so excited for."

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Packed with the series' signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

The cast features Vin Diesel (Guardians of the Galaxy), Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Deepika Padukone (Tamasha), Tony Jaa (Furious 7), Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), MMA fighter Conor McGregor, Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Kris Wu (Somewhere Only We Know), Hermione Corfield (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense) and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers).
