While originally set to be released in theaters last August, Paramount Pictures has decided to ultimately put Mark Wahlberg's newest film Infinite on it's new streaming service Paramount+ on June 10th.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua with a script penned by Ian Shorr, the film focuses on a man named Evan McCauley (Played by Wahlberg) who discovers that his hallucinations from his supposed schizophrenia are actually visions from past lives and that he is one of the "The Infinite", near-immortal men and women who are reincarnated over the centuries. Ultimately, Evan is found by others like him who believe these memories are the key to stopping an evil mastermind. The film is based on the 2009 novel The Reincarnationist Papers.
Infinite is only the most recent film from the last couple years that has been sidelined to streaming so as not to compete with the backlog of blockbusters that are set to start dropping in theaters. Another example is The Tomorrow War (whose trailer was released today) that was sold to Amazon earlier this year and will be released on Amazon Prime on July 2nd.
Infinite co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Cookson, Jason Mantzoukas, Rupert Friend, Liz Carr, Toby Jones, and Dylan O'Brien.
