First, add a PHP code block above the HTML that creates an empty PHP array named $movie.

I added the PHP code block to create an empty array for $movie

$movie = array();

but it's erroring out telling me I didn't create the variable correctly

index.php
<? php 
$movie = array();
?>

Remove the space between ? and php. Your variable declaration is correct.
