Since time is a little tight today, we’re going to focus on the big “xXx: Return Of Xander Cage” premiere in Hollywood. It was a fairly star-packed premiere, so there are plenty of faces to keep you guys busy—at least those of you aren’t preoccupied with the inauguration.

Before we move to the commenting on the photos, here’s more about the new film, which is the third in the “xXx” franchise. Hitting theaters this weekend, the film stars Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette and Samuel L. Jackson.

Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), thought to be long dead, comes out of self-imposed exile as recruited by the CIA to race villain Xiang (Donnie Yen) to recover a powerful weapon known as “Pandora’s Box” which can control military satellites which could cause catastrophic damage. Recruiting a group of thrill-seeking cohorts (a sharpshooter and a hacker), Xander finds himself caught up in a deadly conspiracy of corruption among world governments including insiders in his own country’s government.

Here’s the trailer—the opening photo features Vin Diesel and Bollywood star Deepika Padukone:

Damn, those are lot of tats! Can you imagine what Ruby Rose will look like when she’s 60? Not sure about you guys, but Hermione Corfield has our attention.

Major “OW!” to Paloma Jimenez and can somebody tell Maria Menounos to buy longer dresses? Those legs look painful.

If you thought Priyanka Chopra was a big Bollywood star, Deepika Padukone is even bigger back home in India, so it will be interesting to see how she’s received on the big screen by her old & potentially new fans around the globe!

I’ll be completely honest, I haven’t watched any of the films in the “xXx” franchise, but I’m assuming 95% of the scenes are packed with Vin Diesel flexing his “tough guy” muscles. I’ve seen my share of Jean-Claude Van Damme & Steven Seagal flicks back in the day, but for some reason, I no longer have the patience for those types of movies. Is that something that happens with age?

As for the photos, what’s up with Ruby Rose? She looks like a cross between old-school Angelina Jolie with a really pointy chin. And, Nina looks 10x sexier at this event than she did at the Globes or walking through LAX.

According to their respective Wikipedia entries both Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are two of the biggest names in Bollywood, but it still surprises me that they can manage to land on the Lorraine Show—kind of like a Brit version of ‘Today’ (right?!).
