“Infinite”: First trailer for the action thriller with Mark Wahlberg
After the theatrical release of “Infinite” had already been postponed several times, Paramount decided to offer the sci-fi-heavy action flick exclusively on its own streaming platform Paramount +. So far, however, it is only available in the USA. In German cinemas, the action thriller with Mark Wahlberg in the lead role will probably only be released in September. Nevertheless, we can already look forward to a first impression. Because: The first trailer has been published – and it promises a great cinema spectacle.

“Infinite” is about memories of past lives
Based on the fantasy novel “The Reincarnation Papers” by D. Eric Maikranz, “Infinite” tells the story of Evan McCauley (Mark Wahlberg). At the age of 14, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia as he was plagued by memories of places he supposedly never visited. On the verge of a mental breakdown, Evan is finally visited by the so-called “Infinites”. Through this he learns that his hallucinations are not fictional, but real memories – of his past lives.

“Infinites” are born again people with special abilities
Evans is therefore an “Infinite” himself – a person who has been reborn and therefore has very special abilities, memories and knowledge that he has acquired over the centuries. To find out about his own identity, Evans joins the secret “Infinite” society and helps fight the villain Bathurst (Chiwetel Ejiofor, “12 Years a Slave”) who wants to destroy humanity.
Evans is captured by him in the trailer. Before he can tell Bathurst anything of his memories, a car breaks through the wall of the room in which they are both. A woman named Tammy (Sophie Cookson, “Kingsman: The Secret Service”) frees him. This is followed by a rapid chase through a mysterious system before a voice-over roughly outlines the plot. The trailer ends with a series of action-packed scenes that leave many questions about the plot unanswered. (Also read: Netflix: Streaming Provider Announces Its Ten Most Successful Original Films)
