This may have blinded Mark Wahlberg and director Antoine Fuqua (Training day, Equalizer) to learn their sci-fi / action movie Infinite was hitting the streaming queues straight instead of a conventional theatrical run, but here we are with a June 10 release date and a first trailer.
The concept of history itself has been reinterpreted several times in recent history. This year, a partially similar hook was the basis of Joe Carnahan’s Boss level with Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson, as well as Max Barbakow’s Palm springs with Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti. A little further back, the public experienced the déjà vu with Doug Liman Edge of tomorrow with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. And of course, there’s the OG Time Loop movie: groundhog day, directed by legendary Harold Ramis and starring the inimitable Bill Murray.
