PHP Build a Basic PHP Website (2018) Listing and Sorting Inventory Items Associative Arrays

How do I echo a specific item in an associative array in the body of my html? I think I'm struggling with syntax.

If anyone

index.php
<?php $movie = [];
$movie[title] = "The Empire Strikes Back";
?>
<h1><?php echo $movie["The Empire Strikes Back"];?></h1>

<table>
  <tr>
    <th>Director</th>
    <td>Robert Zemeckis</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <th>IMDB Rating</th>
    <td>8.5</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <th>IMDB Ranking</th>
    <td>53</td>
  </tr>
</table>

Hello

In array movie you create new element with key 'title' and value 'The Empire Strikes Back'

Than you should call this key to show its value

Example below

<?php
$movie = [];
$movie['title'] = "The Empire Strikes Back";
echo $movie['title'];
?>

Thanks! I thought it was a simple matter as such. 'preciate it.
