‘xXx: Return of the Xander Cage’ Hits Blu-ray This Month

xXx is coming to Blu-ray

With “The Fate of the Furious” nearing $1.2B at the global box-office, and “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” moving towards $1B as well, Vin Diesel has a good shot at dominating both the box-office and the home box-office when his “xXx’ installment releases later this month. “XXX Return of Xander Cage” will release on a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand starting on May 16, 2017 (Amazon for $19). Fans that want to be the first to watch the film can get the Digital HD option, which released on May 2.

In the film, a group of lethal mercenaries steal a hi-tech weapon that poses a global threat, and the world needs superspy Xander Cage (Vin Diesel). Recruited back into action, Xander leads a team of adrenaline junkies on a mission to save the day. The film features an international cast including Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose (John Wick: Chapter 2), Tony Jaa (Furious 7), Nina Dobrev (TV’s “The Vampire Diaries”), and Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island).

The film’s 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Packs are loaded with over an hour of special features, including in-depth interviews with the all-star cast, plus a behind-the-scenes look at the film’s incredible stunts, locations and much more. The film also boasts a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.

“xXx: Return of Xander Cage” did well in theaters, grossing almost $45M domestically before going to make $346M globally. The film did not open at number-one back in January, instead it debut at number-two under the thriller “Split”. No word yet if another “xXX” film is in the works, but you can see Vin Diesel (or hear him as Groot) in the upcoming “Fast & Furious” installments, and in “Avengers: Infinity War”.
