Have you ever felt like you’ve been to place before, but it’s your first time? In Infinite starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor, that becomes a reality. The sci-fi action film for Paramount+ directed by Antoine Fuqua goes deep into what memories can mean. Here’s the official synopsis:
For Evan McCauley (Mark Wahlberg), skills he has never learned and memories of places he has never visited haunt his daily life. Self-medicated and on the brink of a mental breakdown, Evan is sought by a secret group that call themselves “Infinites,” revealing to him that his memories may be real—but they are from multiple past lives. The Infinites bring Evan into their extraordinary world, where a gifted few are given the ability to be reborn with their memories and knowledge accumulated over centuries. With critical secrets buried in his past, Evan must work with the Infinites to unlock the answers in his memories in a race against time to save humanity from one of their own (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who seeks to end all life to stop what he views as the cursed, endless cycle of reincarnation.
The movie is based on the book, The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz. It’s screenplay was written by Ian Shorr with a screen story by Todd Stein. It debuts on Paramount+ on June 10th. It also stars Sophie Cookson, Jason Mantzoukas, Rupert Friend, Liz Carr, with Toby Jones and Dylan O’Brien.
