Interview: Travis Beacham, Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift


“For a writer best known for penning large scale stories, Travis Beacham’s enthusiasm for small stakes comes as something of a surprise. 2010’s Clash of the Titans, which Beacham wrote an early draft for, threw the balance of power among Greek gods into turmoil; more notably, 2013’s Pacific Rim, which Beacham co-wrote with Guillermo del Toro, put the very survival of humanity on the line. However, the spectacle in these films combines with Beacham’s interest in human stories. Personal conflicts and struggles make up their cores. This is true, too, of Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, a graphic novel released on the cusp of the Pacific Rim‘s theatrical premiere. That collection served as a prequel to the events in the film, and now it’s joined on shelved by Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift, a follow up to the narrative set up in the original comic series.” (Via Screen Rant.)
