If you love mysteries that involve past lives and reincarnation, Infinite is definitely your film. Created by Antoine Fuqua and released by Paramount Plus, Infinite is a science fantasy action movie adapted from the novel The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz (2009).
What Do We Know About The Movie?
The 2021 American science fantasy action movie Infinite involves Evan McCauley, played by Mark Wahlberg, a self-medicated man diagnosed with Schizophrenia. His disease is diagnosed when he begins dreaming about places he has never visited and situations he has never been in. Not understanding what is happening and on the verge of a breakdown, Evan is rescued by a group of people called “Infinites.” Evan is told that he is one of the “Infinites” and that his dreams are real and from his multiple former lives.
Infinites have a special ability to be reborn with the mind and experiences gained across centuries in multiple lives through the cycle of reincarnation. Now that Evan is a part of Infinites, he should reveal the responses and protect humankind from their own.
The movie takes an interesting turn when Bathurst (one of their kind) decides to kill all humanity. Evan joins Infinites in the mission to stop him.
Is there any prequel or sequel coming soon?
With the theme of resurrection and reincarnation, Infinite has two main leads, Evan McCauley and Bathurst.
Evan has a mission to stop Bathurst from killing the world. As the movie ends, we saw Evan making sure that Bathurst wouldn’t reincarnate and therefore couldn’t renew his attempt to kill the world. Bathurst couldn’t reincarnate. We do not see any prequel of the movie coming to learn why Bathurst wanted to kill humanity. Another reason for a prequel not coming is that Evan learned all about Infinites in this movie only.
As we realize there is no hope for a prequel coming, we are sure that a sequel would come real soon. In the climax of Infinite, Evan McCaulay and Nora Brightman were reincarnated as more youthful Asian people. Now it would be great to see Mark Wahlberg reprise his highlighting character in Infinite 2. Certainly, we would not see many characters coming back as themselves but other characters being resurrected as them.
