Paramount+ has released the first trailer for Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming sci-fi action thriller Infinite, which comes from director Antoine Fuqua. The film tells the story of a secret group of continuously reincarnated people that battle an evil madman who’s been hell-bent on trying to destroy the world for centuries.
The movie is Inspired by D. Eric Maikranz’s 2009 novel titled The Reincarnationist Papers, and Wahlberg plays a man named Evan McCauley, who has lived and died a thousand times. He is “a man haunted daily by skills he has never learned and the memories of places he’s never visited. Self-medicated and on the brink of a mental breakdown, he is rescued by the secret group whose members call themselves Infinites. They reveal to him that his memories are real – but they are from multiple past lives.”
The Infinites bring Evan into their extraordinary world, “where a gifted few are given the ability to be reborn with their memories and knowledge accumulated over centuries. With critical secrets buried in his past, Evan must work with the Infinites to unlock the answers in his memories in a race against time to save humanity from one of their own who seeks to destroy it.”
This looks like it’ll be a pretty cool movie! I dig the concept, and I think it could end up being a good action flick. The movie also stars Sophie Cookson, Dylan O’Brien, Rupert Friend, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Jason Mantzoukas, Tom Hughes, Wallis Day, Toby Jones, Liz Carr, and Kae Alexander.
Infinite is set to be released on June 10th, exclusively on Paramount+. It was originally supposed to come out in theaters but plans obviously changed.
