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.
