Mark Wahlberg and his abs stars on Infinite before he intentionally gained weight for a different movie. Here is the trailer:
It is an adaptation of the novel The Reincarnationist Papers. D Eric Maikranz wrote the novel this movie is based from. It got mainstream attention when it got a positive review from Oprah Winfrey Magazine.
Infinite centers around Evan McCauley . He suffers with Schizophrenia because he is having memories from different lives. He is abducted by Ted (Chiwetel Ejiofor ) Who is forcing him to remember a memory that has been replaced in his consciousness.
Little did he know those hallucinations are real memories of his past life but he forgot them after deaths. Very little of the plot is revealed from the movie but it does remind me a bit of the Videogame Assassin’s creed. People still debate the existence of reincarnation but some cases seemed to prove its probability. Infinite will center around an association called “The reincarnationist.” They are a group of people who remember most of their past lives.
He will meet a Young woman named Tammy (Sophie Cookson ) after she rescued him from his abductor. Remembering his past like gives him the ability to reclaim his part talents and skills.
The Book source material is more grounded but this adaptation might be more flashy with all the explosions we see on the trailer.
Wahlberg using his shirtless body as promotion material for this movie may have something to do with his current figure. He is trying to gain weight for the past few months for a different role.
This movie has been filming since 2019 but the Pandemic stopped its production. The theatrical release of the film has been canceled.
Now people will be able to watch it at Paramount+. The release date will be on June 10, 2021.
