Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie vs. the box office

It had to happen: Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston will finally get to duke it out.

At the box office.

Both actresses have big movies opening on Oct. 24: Angelina's "Changeling" and Jennifer's "He's Just Not That Into You."

But "Into You" also stars other appealing actors such as Scarlett Johansson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Drew Barrymore, her boyfriend Justin Long, Jennifer Connelly and Ben Affleck. Aniston plays Affleck's love interest in the adaptation of the bestselling relationship book that's also become part of the modern cultural vernacular.

Director Clint Eastwood's period mystery, "Changeling," also stars John Malkovich and Amy Ryan, and already created Oscar buzz for Jolie at the Cannes Film Festival.

My bet? Jennifer will win the box-office battle and Angelina may end up with a little gold Oscar statue.

And the other thing to consider is that movie opening dates often change. Plus "Changeling" is not opening wide until Oct 31.

What do you think? Which movie - and actress - would you rather see and why?
