What a wonderful town

The much anticipated Simpsons movie opens in cinemas across the globe on 27 July.

And where better to hold the world premiere than Springfield.

But which Springfield exactly?

There are over 30 towns in America called Springfield, but only one of them can host the premiere.

So Fox is asking the Springfields to compete for the honour.

The towns were each asked to supply videos showing why their Springfield should be the one.

“Like the show, we have a bowling alley, local pubs and manufacturing,” said Dottie Chaffee from one of the many competing Springfields.

She then went on to say, “We don’t have a nuclear power plant, but there’s one that’s close.”
