In the sexy and sleek psychological thriller Basic Instinct 2, after re-locating from San Francisco to London, best-selling crime novelist Catherine Trammel (Sharon Stone) once again finds herself on the wrong side of the law.
Dr. Michael Glass (David Morrissey), a respected London criminal psychiatrist, is brought in by Scotland Yard detective Roy Washburn (David Thewlis) to perform a psychiatric profile and evaluation of Tramell following the mysterious death of a top sports star. Physically drawn to Tramell and mentally intrigued by her, Glass, against the advice of his mentor, Dr. Milena Gardosh (Charlotte Rampling), is quickly sucked into her web of lies and seduction. The professional boundaries between Glass and Tramell are obliterated when she uncovers his basic instincts. A deadly battle of wits ensues, climaxing as Glass faces a choice that will change both their lives forever.
In a remarkably slow week for home video, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction narrowly captured the top spot on the national DVD sales chart, while Paramount's Failure to Launch remained the top-renting DVD after nearly three weeks in stores, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction earned just $5.9 million at the box office, but it's still the biggest new theatrical to arrive in stores the week ending July 16. The sequel barely squeaked by Buena Vista's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which finished at No. 2 on VideoScan's First Alert sales chart for the second consecutive week-even though it's been available on DVD for nearly three years. Failure to Launch, No. 1 the previous two weeks, slipped to No. 3.Read More

David Morrissey has the enviable task of romping around naked with Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct 2. He co-stars as Dr. Michael Glass, a headstrong psychiatrist that gets caught up in a web of seduction and manipulation. David was very congenial during our interview. He seemed so much the James Bond-type, I had to ask him if he was auditioned for the role. Apparently not, but he, like every other English actor, gave Daniel Craig high marks. You can also see David in the upcoming Stoned, the biopic about Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones.
Sharon Stone spoke about how she was glad they (other male leads) left, turned down or were rejected for the role because they got the greatest guy. How does that make you feel?Read More
