The second trailer for Infinite has arrived online exactly one week after the first round of footage was revealed last Friday. Ironically, this is also the "Final trailer" for a movie about a group of immortal beings who have the ability to reincarnate themselves ad infinitum. Mark Wahlberg headlines the project (helmed by his Shooter director, Antoine Fuqua) as Evan McCauley, a man who doesn't realize that his constant visions are not a sign of Schizophrenia, but glimpses of past lives.

Once he's De-Neuralyzed and reminded of his true nature, he'll need to draw on all the skills he picked up in those other eras to take down Ted Murray (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a villain who wants to rid the world of immortals. What follows is a globe-trotting adventure that melds the globe-trotting excitement of Mission: Impossible with the nigh-invincible warriors of The Old Guard (the latter also stars Ejiofor).

Check out the new trailer below:

Penned by Ian Shorr (Trenches), Infinite is an adaptation of D. Eric Maikranz's 2020 novel, The Reincarnationist Papers

"I am fascinated by time and how we are different people at different times in our lives," the author said during an interview with Writer's Digest last May. "We are students, then workers, and then retirees. We are children, then parents, and then grandparents. And each person we were helps us to become that new person we need to become ... We’ve all heard the age-old saying 'if I only knew then what I know now.' I took that thought to its extreme by envisioning characters with centuries of knowledge and wisdom inherited from a total recall (languages, skills, experiences) of their past lives."

Toby Jones (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Rupert Friend (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Liz Carr (The Witcher), Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Bloodshot), Dylan O'Brien (Love and Monsters), Jason Mantzoukas (Invincible), and Sophie Cookson (Kingsman) co-star.

Infinite drops onto Paramount+ next Thursday, June 10. Try to unlock some of your own past lives with the poster and production stills in the gallery below...
