Springfields compete for Simpson movie premier
Towns named 'Springfield' across the country are vying for the right to host the premier of the upcoming Simpson's movie set to be released this summer.
Sixteen Springfields all in different states will make the final list of competitors. Each town will have to make a short film touting their town and its "Simpsonesque" qualities to help win over the Fox execs.
City officials are taking these competition very seriously. From Massachusetts claiming the accent to Illinois and Tennessee marking their spot due to the proximatey to Simpson vacations and travels.
The Simpsons movie opens July 23.
