Director Steven Spielberg's new movie Munich is odds-on favourite to scoop the Best Picture Oscar at next year's (05) ceremony - three weeks before it is released in the US.

The movie, which will debut in America on 23 December (05), has become betting site's 5-2 favourite to scoop the coveted honour when the Academy Awards take place in Hollywood on 5 March.

George Clooney movies SYRIANA and GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK are enjoying odds of 8-1 and 15-1, respectively, while Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds languishes at the bottom with odds of 750-1.
