Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming sci-fi thriller film Infinite is all set to release on Paramount Plus. However, sometime back Paramount Studio announced a theatrical release of the film in August. But now the Paramount Studio has shifted to the streaming service platform for the release of the film instead of theaters. Now Paramount’s Infinite film release date has been set for this summer June.
Ever since pandemic started, it has almost killed theaters. When the situation improved a little about pandemic, governments issued guidelines to allow the theater to reopen. Even then the audience is reaching a very small number in theaters. As a result, the film producer has to suffer a lot of damage. In such circumstances, big studios have decided to release their films on their own streaming platforms and theaters. The decision to release the films on the streaming platform was first decided by Disney with the release of Mulan, which was very profitable.
Like Disney, Warner Bros. also decided to release all of their upcoming films with theaters along with their own streaming service platform HBO Max in theaters on the same day. In this Pandemic environment, Netflix, Disney Plus and HBO Max have added a lot of users. This Paramount has played the right claim, release a big movie on its streaming platform and get subscribers. Paramount Plus currently has over 36 million users.
Paramount’s Infinite film is based on novel ‘The Reincarnationist Papers‘ by D. Eric Maikranz. Infinite film’s story revolves around Evan McCauley ( Mark Wahlberg ), a man who shrugs off memories of his past lifes. He dreams of places he has never been. He knows everything he never learned. Soon he finds himself in a race to save himself and humanity and seeks to end all life to stop endless cycle of reincarnation.
Infinite film is directed by Antoine Fuqua and also serving as executive producer with Rafi Crohn, Brian Oliver, Bradley J. Fischer and Valerii An. Wahlberg, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Mark Huffam, John Zaozirny and Stephen Levinson are serving as producer.
