Paramount is exclusively premiering another film on its new streaming service.

Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) will now premiere on the Paramount+ streaming service in June, skipping an official theatrical release.

Bob Bakish, CEO of ViacomCBS, made the announcement during the mass media company's first-quarter earnings call on Thursday, according to Deadline. The sci-fi thriller was originally slated to hit theaters September 24.

This is one of many films ViacomCBS will exclusively debut on its rebranded streaming service in an effort to compete with their other platforms like Disney+, Netflix, HBO Max and more.
