Function doesn't return data to $scope variable. - AngularJS


const app = angular.module("myApp", []);

app.controller("myCtrl", function($scope) {     
    function getData() {
            .then(response => {
            console.log(response.data); // shows the data
            return response.data;
        .catch(e => console.error(e.message));

    console.log(getData()); // undefined
    $scope.movies = getData();

Console logging response.data gives back my data. But if I try and store the return in a $scope.movies variable. it's undefined...

Any clue?

Thank you?
