‘Force Of Nature: The Dry 2’ Trailer: Eric Bana Investigates A Missing Whistleblower In The Australian Mountains

Eric Bana is back on the case as Detective Aaron Falk. The Dry was a big hit in Australia back in 2020 before its release here the following year. An adaptation of Jane Harper’s mystery novel, a sequel based on her follow-up book Force of Nature was quickly set into motion and released in Australia last month, before its arrival in the States this May.

Once again written and directed by Robert Connolly, Force of Nature: The Dry 2 follows Falk as he investigates the disappearance of a woman on a corporate hiking retreat deep in the Victorian mountains. Falk is joined in the case by his partner, Carmen Cooper, and the two discover a potential conspiracy involving corporate corruption, as the missing woman is a whistleblower and police informant.

Bana is surrounded by a cast that includes Jacqueline McKenzie, Anna Torv, Richard Roxburgh,Deborra-Lee Furness, and Robin McLeavy.

Here’s the synopsis: After receiving a distressing call from an informant, Federal Agents Aaron Falk and Carmen Cooper head deep into the Giralang Ranges to investigate the whereabouts of their corporate whistle-blower Alice after she mysteriously disappears on a company hiking retreat. The four women who were recovered from the bush each seem to be hiding something about their traumatic experience. As Falk and Cooper close in on the case, they uncover worrying details about the connections between these women and begin to fear for the safety of their missing informant as a storm threatens to halt the search.

Force of Nature: The Dry 2 opens in theaters and VOD on May 10th.
