Phone Booth: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment took top honors with its release of "Phone Booth," starring Colin Farrell, Kiefer Sutherland and Forest Whitaker, coming in at the top of the charts for DVD sales and rentals for the week ending July 13, according to Nielsen VideoScan and Video Store magazine research, respectively. Fox's psychological thriller generated an estimated $11.58 million in rental revenue during its first five days on store shelves and took the No. 1 slot on VideoScan's First Alert DVD sales chart during the same frame. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment's debut of "Basic," starring John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, came in a very close second in both initial DVD sales and rental revenue. The suspense drama earned an estimated $11.34 million in rental revenue after five days and nearly matched initial numbers coming from VideoScan's First Alert DVD sales for the week ending July 13.
