Behind the scenes of XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE
Last July, the first trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage debuted. Twenty seconds in, Diesel’s eponymous hero climbs a transmission tower, straps skis to his feet, and free-falls into the jungle below. What follows are fast edits of him leaping and bounding off the trees. The internet went into overdrive.
At the time, nobody believed it was possible. So xXx’s producers decided to stage the scene again, only this time with witnesses. The Red Bulletin was invited along to be one of those witnesses, and what we saw was truly spectacular.
Watch the clip below, see how the world’s only jungle skiers pulled off the stunt again and read our in-depth feature on how they made the impossible possible.
