Simpsons Movie

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois' Springfield came in second to the Vermont town of the same name in the contest to host "The Simpsons Movie" premiere on July 21st.

But being the runner-up will still bring a prize to folks in Illinois' capital.

Springfield (Illinois) will get a sneak peek at "The Simpsons Movie" on Thursday, July 26th. That's one day before the cartoon feature opens across the country.

A spokeswoman for 20th Century Fox has confirmed the timing of the screening.

But there's still no word on where the preview will be held and how people can get tickets.
