Paramount+ has released the official Infinite trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming sci-fi action feature, starring Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg (The Departed). The long-in-development film is scheduled to make its debut on June 10, exclusively on Paramount+.
The video begins with Wahlberg’s Evan McCauley as he gets interrogated at gunpoint by Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Bathurst, forcing Evan to remember who he really is. He soon discovers that his actually part of a secret group of people called the Infinites, who have been reincarnated a thousand times. Now, Evan must band together with the other Infinites in order to save the world.
Inspired by D. Eric Maikranz’s 2009 novel titled The Reincarnationist Papers, Infinite tells the story of a secret group of continuously reincarnated people that battle an evil madman bent on world destruction for centuries. It will center around Evan McCauley, 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.
The film stars Mark Wahlberg, 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 hails from director Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer 2, Southpaw) and scribe Ian Shorr (Splinter), who adapted the script based on a story by Todd Stein.
