Challenge task 3/7 - Associative Arrays(Build simple PHP app)

I am having trouble in this challenge, I tried 3 different versions of what I assume as a correct answer and it is not excepted. Please can you tell me what exactly is wrong with my answer and how to correct it? Task detail: By the end of this code challenge, we'll REMOVE from the page all the information about the original movie ("Back to the Future") and REPLACE it with information about the new movie ("The Empire Strikes Back"). Right now, the <h1> element has the title of the original movie as a static piece of text. Replace that with a PHP command that INSTEAD displays the title of the new movie from the array. (Be sure to leave the <h1> tags, the parentheses, and the year intact.) My code:
<pre> <?php $movie=array(); $movie["title"]="The Empire Strikes Back"; ?> <h1><?php echo $movie["title"];?>(1985)</h1> </pre> Error: Bummer! It looks like the title of the second movie is in the <h1>, but something else isn't quite right. Double-check the parentheses and the year.

I don't mean to insult your intelligence in the least, but I don't see a space between the title of the movies and the open-parentheses. Could that be the problem?

No offense taken. I am here to learn! I tried to troubleshoot my code first & google it before asking here, in addition when I compiled it in online PHP editors everything worked ok.

CORRECT ANSWER: you were right, thanks!

I have the same problem too.

I figure it out...

<?php $movie = array("title"=>"The Empire Strikes Back") ; ?>

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?> (1985)</h1>
