Jason Mantzoukas Steals Paramount’s New Trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s Infinite

Sure, Mark Wahlberg stabs a plane with a samurai sword and clings to its hull as it flies through the sky, and Chiwetel Ejiofor hunts same-said Mark Wahlberg and his fellow super-beings through the centuries as they all reincarnate again and again, ever more powerful, but the most fun part of Paramount+’s new Infinite trailer is definitely Jason Mantzoukas, who co-stars as some kind of extremely upbeat reincarnation technician. “I like you this time around,” he enthuses, as he ushers Wahlberg in to get his memories “reset,” a process that involves a leaking steel tube and seems wildly unpleasant.

But back to the film’s conceit: Do you find yourself drawn to places you’ve never been? Well, according to the forthcoming action movie Infinite, based on author D. Eric Maikranz’s The Reincarnationist Papers and premiering on Paramount+ on June 10, that might be because you’re an Infinite, a warrior capable of retaining his or her skills (and personality!) while reincarnating through time. Great for kicking ass on top of a construction crane, less so for escaping one of your own that has decided your mere existence is an abomination and you all must be destroyed. Still, the plane-stabbing skills might make it all worth it. Which life did Mark Wahlberg learn how to do that in? Seems like it’d have to be pretty recent.
