The trailer for Vin Diesel's new action flick XXX: The Return of Xander Cage is out and the fans are loving it - the clip has already racked up hundreds of millions of views across social media.

By comparison, Fifty Shades Darker earned 114m views in first 24 hours, while Force Awakens clocked 112m.

Not bad, considering the sequel sees Diesel return to the role for the first time in nearly 15 years as he missed the 2005 sequel for which Ice Cube was cast in his absence.

The new instalment follows the extreme sports hero in an action-packed ensemble film, also starring Samuel L Jackson, Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Toni Collette and Bollywood super star Deepika Padukone.
