The opening logos of Warner Brothers Pictures, New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow Pictures, Ratpac Entertainment, and Overbrook Entertainment are all in pure white, including the backgrounds, which then goes to a line of pure white domino type blocks ending with a clock shaped circle (also with pure white blocks on a white background) as the movies dialogue starts.

Every tragedy is accompanied by beauty. However, as we are steeped in grief and sorrow, we tend to overlook the beauty that is caused by the tragedy. The term "collateral" is often followed by the term "damage". It is so familiar to keep an eye on the collateral damage of anything we do. We don't tend to look for beauty. This movie is so deep, and it is one of those type of movies that make you think! It illustrates the three big why's that drives us; love, death, and time. These three constructs are not absolute; they are not fixed and they don't diminish. They are so sensitive to things, events, and people surrounding us. They change forms, and accordingly change our lives. In the midst of all the tragedies you face during your life, all the bitterness, keep an eye on the collateral beauty.
