(Newser) Finally, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston will have their day to duke it out—in theaters, that is. Brad Pitt's current partner and ex-wife will go head-to-head on Oct. 24, when both have a movie coming out: Jolie in Clint Eastwood's missing-child drama Changeling and Aniston in the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You.

Aniston is likely to win the dollar battle because her film debuts nationwide, while Changeling opens in just a few cities before going national a week later. But Oscar-winner Jolie is expected to lead the acclaim game. She's already on track for a best-actress statue.
