George Deckert (Willem Dafoe) is a
former general with past ties to both
Gibbons and Stone,  a government
power player with a hidden agenda.

Jackson talks about what it was like to
work with Ice Cube, "I have been
watching Cube develop and it's really
nice to finally work with him and see
how much his process has evolved and
where he's come. It has been a
pleasure to share the creative space
with him."

Ice Cube relinquishes, "Sam has
always been one of my favorite actors.  
Willem and Sam bring credibility to the
movie."

Rapper Xzibit plays Zeke, a former
colleague from the streets who runs a
chop shop and has the connections to
help Stone thwart the plot to overthrow
the government.
"I've been checking on Xzibit out since he
started in the rap game. It's really cool to
see him moving into films and doing his
thing", says Ice Cube.
Says Ice Cube about his character, "Darius is a guy who follows his
own mind. He knows that in this world there are rules but he feels
rules are made to be broken, at least until he gets the job done."
In Revolution Studios’ bold new action thriller
XXX: State of the Union a follow-up to the
blockbuster film of 2002 a popular President
is being targeted for assassination by a
radical splinter group of dissenters deep
within the United States government

Only two people stand between anarchy and
freedom.

One is  Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L.
Jackson) who has just survived a hit on the
National Security Agency's top-secret
headquarters and who is on the run.

The other Darius Stone (Ice Cube) who sits
under close guard in a military prison.

Accordings to Jackson, "Gibbons and Stone
did a lot of missions together and had each
others back.  Gibbons knows he's been fairly
branded and he is willing to do anything that
will exonerate him."
One of the people who helps
him get the job done is his old
girlfriend Lola.   

Years ago they were the Bonnie
and Clyde of the D.C. area but
she has since gone straight and
now owns a luxury auto
dealership.

Nona Gaye (daughter of Motown
great
Marvin Gaye) plays Lola,
Darius' streetwise ex-lover
whose ownership of a high-end
custom car dealership is vital to
his success.

Says Ice Cube, "A few years ago
I directed Nona's music video
so we've known each other for a
while.

Zoo.  

He and his best friends Marty the Zebra (

Hippo (

Even in New York City, a lion, giraffe and
hippopotamus wandering the streets and
riding the subway are bound to attract some
attention.  

In the middle of the night, Alex, Melman and
Gloria discover their friend missing and decide
the only course of action is to break out of the
zoo and get Marty back home before anyone
notices they’re gone.


Alex, Melman and Gloria manage to track Marty
down in Grand Central Station, but before they
can catch the train back to the zoo, they are
darted, captured, crated and put on a ship to
Africa.
