Since Paramount Pictures dropped the first trailer for the long-awaited return of Vin Diesel to the #xXx franchise, pre-buzz for the film and its story have been very positive and lively, many fans (including myself) looking at it as a big comeback for the dormant action franchise.

After three months of letting the hype settle amongst fans, Paramount has just dropped the international trailer for the film, and the levels of excitement and action have soared through the roof. Return of Xander Cage not only promises some big action, but also some more insight on the new characters of the franchise. Here's the trailer for your viewing pleasure:

Though a lot of the trailer reinforces how awesomely action-packed this movie is going to be, it actually offered a lot of interesting nods in terms of its plot. Let's break this trailer down and look at some of the most interesting moments that still have us asking questions.

Diesel Loves Teambuilding

Even though Xander was a lone wolf action star in the first installment, the threat of deadly warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) is apparently so large, even Xander acknowledges he needs some help. Though the previous trailer did show he had newcomers, including Ruby Rose's Adele and Deepika Padukone's Serena, fighting on his side, this trailer shows more in the way of how he recruits some of these characters, and connects almost immediately with them.

Padukone And Rose Will Be The Ultimate Female Badass Duo

We did see Rose shooting some people with style in the first trailer for the xXx sequel, but we didn't get a very good look at the badassery that Padukone will be delivering in this movie. The new trailer showed she not only has quick reflexes in hand-to-hand combat, but also that she has plenty of flexibility and agility in getting around (mostly) undetected.

Just Who The Hell Is Toni Collette Playing?

We've gotten glimpses and brief audio clips from Collette's character in each trailer, but still not enough in the way of telling us just who she is or who she works for. The trailers do all seem to point towards her being an ally for Xander and his team, but it's still unclear if she works with NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), or possibly even his superior, or if she's a third-party who has an interest in capturing Xiang.

Xander And Serena Will Be The Best Power Couple Since Dom And Letty

Yes, I know that Dom is also played by Vin Diesel in another action franchise, but he and Letty truly are an epic power couple. Through memory loss, major villains and a gunshot to the shoulder, Letty and Dom are still majorly in love and fighting anyone that messes with them and their crew. The new pairing of Xander and Serena looks to continue Diesel's on-screen power couple streak going, as not only are both fierce fighters and skilled in many talents, but they also seem to make a deep connection right off the bat.
