Where was Infinite filmed? 2021 Paramount+ movie filming locations
Where was Infinite filmed? Letâ€™s consider the filming locations of the 2021 Paramount+ movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
While audiences are yet to check out such highly anticipated movies as Dune and No Time to Die that were delayed in 2020, viewers have finally been invited to watch the latest from Antoine Fuqua.
The sci-fi actioner Infinite was initially expected to release in August 2020 but was pulled back in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it eventually arrived on Paramount+ on Thursday, June 10th 2021, serving as an adaptation of D. Eric Maikranzâ€™s 2009 novel The Reincarnationist Papers.
The cast is led by Mark Wahlberg in the role of Evan McCauley, a man puzzled by memories of a place and life heâ€™s unfamiliar with. Things become clearer when heâ€™s approached by a group called the â€œInfinitesâ€, who explain that these visions are more significant than he could have imagined.
What follows is a fight to save humanity as we journey through a string of exciting locations, so where was Infinite filmed?

- The cast and crew travelled to a range of locations which include London, Cardiff, Hampshire, Scotland, Thailand, Nepal, Mexico, and the Alps.
They were spotted shooting sequences at the Mercure Hotel on 24 Newport Road, Cardiff, Wales. The location was used to facilitate both interior and exterior sequences, while the BBC reported back in October 2019 that the road was closed to ensure there were no interruptions.
You may be surprised to discover that it was Cardiff doubling for New York and a number of traffic lights were brought onto the set to help craft the illusion, along with NYPD vehicles.
Additional scenes were reportedly captured at the Farnborough Airport in Farnborough, Hampshire, England.
The production was rather ambitious in its globetrotting approach, as itâ€™s worth highlighting that the team visited Guanajuato, Mexico, with the cityâ€™s tunnel system making it into a selection of the shots.
Speaking of Mexico, you may also recognise that some of the shoot took place in Mexico City and the Centro Histأ³rico de la Ciudad de Mأ©xico, the Zأ³calo, the Paseo de la Reforma, Periferico Sur, Autopista Urbana Sur, and the Avenida Revoluciأ³n may have made it into the final product.
A win for Wahlberg?

Exploring genres with Antoine Fuqua
The 55-year-old filmmaker has navigated a number of genres across his directorial career and Infinite marks his dive into the remarkable world of sci-fi.
He is arguably still best known for helming the 2001 film Training Day and heâ€™s gone on to work on more crime dramas such as Brooklynâ€™s Finest and the recent The Equalizer efforts.
However, he has exercised impressive versatility over the years, having approached a number of genres with the likes of the historical adventure film King Arthur, boxing with Southpaw, westerns in The Magnificent Seven, and beyond.
Infinite is now streaming on Paramount+.
