Boston's Mark Wahlberg stars in the Antoine Fuqua-directed sci-fi thriller 'Infinite'

With a sharp sword and a dim brain, Mark Wahlberg ventures into the sphere of a dumbed-down Christopher Nolan flick by putting his buff 50-year-old body through the ringer in the reincarnation piffle, “Infinite.” Finite is more like it, as the latest mediocre effort from director Antoine Fuqua has only one life to live, likely in late-night reruns at its new home on Paramount Plus. It is there where “Infinite” has landed after plans were (wisely) scrapped to open it in theaters before COVID-19 hit. Well, there you have the killer-pandemic’s one positive.

The President: Antoine Fuqua Attached to Washington-Focused Pilot

The creators behind the series, Emancipation, are looking to bring a deeper look into George Washington's presidency on the small screen, especially when it comes to emancipation and the president's own slave ownership history. The series, set to be named The President, will be made up of 8 episodes, each an hour-long, and the pilot already has Antoine Fuqua directing- whose past directorial credits include The Resident and Shooter. The series is set to explore a bigger point over the presidency of George Washington. Outside of the setting of a democratic government and the initial foundation of how legislation and such would go forward in the United States, the founding father and first lady led a hypocritical life. In their Virginia plantation, they enslaved over 300 black people, with 8 joining Washington in his government office in New York.
