The opening scene takes place on "Day 89", while the remainder of the film occurs on or after "Day 472", or one year and 18 days later. But days 472 and beyond clearly occur earlier in the fall than day 89. As is noted in the "Trivia" section, the opening scene was filmed last because it required John Krasinski to shave off much of his beard, so it was indeed shot later in the fall. This anachronism could have been corrected by changing "Day 472" to, say, "Day 442".
The main title appears after about nine minutes, created to look as though it is made from sand, and is the only on-screen credit aside from the opening production logos.
