Once destined to finally hit theaters this September, the long delayed sci-fi action film Infinite which stars leading man Mark Wahlberg will now make its debut on the Paramount + streaming service this June.
The announcement was made by ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish during a first-quarter earnings call. Bakish outlined the movie in an attempt to bolster the new service’s movie platform as they try to compete in the streaming service wars that is ongoing.
Wahlberg stars along with Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Tammy, Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner trilogy) as Heinrich Treadway, Rupert Friend (Homeland) as Bathurst, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange) as Ted, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Alpha) as Kovic, Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as Peabody, Tom Hughes (The Game) as Abel, Wallis Day (Krypton) as Shin, Toby Jones (The Girl) as Kent, Liz Carr (The OA) as Garrick and Kae Alexander (Ready Player One).
