Jolie and Voight set for box office battle

Angelina Jolie and her estranged father Jon Voight are set for a new battle - at the box office.

Voight's 'Body of Lies' movie opens in America on Friday, the same day Jolie's new movie 'Changeling' hits cinemas.

The pair have been estranged since Voight went public with his concerns for his daughter's mental health in a tearful 2002 TV interview.

But he refuses to bad-mouth Jolie as the pair go head to head at the box office: "I hear her new movie, which opens the same day we do, is great. I hear she's wonderful in it."
