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.

“Turning to movies where we are poised to dramatically enhance the scale of our offering,” Bakish commented (via The Hollywood Reporter). “In fact, we will shortly kick off a ‘Mountain of Movies’ marketing campaign, where we will highlight the thousands of new movies we are adding to Paramount+, including blockbuster hits and exclusive originals.”

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).

The official synopsis reads: Based on D. Eric Maikranz’s The Reincarnationist Papers novel, Infinite tells the story of a secret group of people who are continuously reincarnated century-after-century to battle an evil madman bent on world destruction. It will center around Evan McCauley, a guy 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 won’t be the first Mark Wahlberg led film to debut on a streaming service as his Spencer Confidential debuted on Netflix last year. Infinite was supposed to release theatrically last year before the pandemic hit and was shelved until this coming September. That’s all changed now as the film will bypass cinemas all together.
