It was reported yesterday that XXX – The Return of Xander Cage is the the number one film in the world at the moment. If you haven’t seen it yet, chances are you’ve probably seen the trailer. A new trailer featuring the downhill stunts just came out.  I for one am glad Vin Diesel is back to save the world and possibly the skate world! One of the stunt doubles Brandon Desjarlais of Moonshine and Abec 11 is a personal friend. On behalf of skaters everywhere Brandon, we are stoked for you.These days, films last about 10 days at most theaters. Unlike back in the 1980’s when Back to the Future played for months and helped propel skateboarding forward into 1985 and beyond! Time will tell if Xander Cage was able to help save skateboarding but at this point, anything is possible.  Who could forget the scene in Part 2 of Back to the Future? Sales of hoverboards exploded after this!  The truth is that no one really knows what will capture the imaginations of the public. Perhaps the millions who have seen XXX clip online or on their phones might be interested in riding down a hill at speed (along with ollieing onto buses). At this point in skateboarding, anything is possible. Just for the record, Mr. Diesel took home over 45 million dollars in 2015 and didn’t do too badly in 2016.
