A few month after the first publication of the single-DVD in the USA, Alliance Atlantis published a Special Edition, which also contains a Recut of the movie besides the theatrical verision. All three episodes and the scene with Josh Hartnett have been separated and can be selected individually. Furthermore there are 10 new scenes. You can indeed stick closer to the comics with the allocation, nonetheless the cut of the theatrical version was the better choice for a movie. Especially the part with Josh Hartnet seems to be a little bit lost.
With the new inluceded scenes every single bit of the comics is in the movie but they are not of great importance. However the last scene with Miho doesn't appear in the third comic "The Big Fat Kill".
At this point both scenes with Josh Hartnett, which were seen at the beginning and the end of the movie in the theatrical version, were combined to one episode. There is the Sin City logo of the theatrical version between both parts. Especially the seperation of the Becky part from the actual end of the movie is kind of unfavorable.
No time difference.
