Movie Activity

Ok so I know I should put a variable before the getImageId() method but I'm not sure which one. How do I get the drawable Id from the movie class?

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;

public class MovieActivity extends Activity {

    @BindView(R.id.movieTitle) TextView mTitleLabel;
    @BindView(R.id.movieImage) ImageView mMovieImage;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // The rest of the code is omitted for brevity :)

    public void updateDisplay(Movie movie) {
        // Add your code here!
        Drawable drawable = movie.getDrawable(getImageId());
public class Movie {
    private String mTitle;
    private int mYearReleased;
    private int mImageId;

    public int getImageId() {
        return mImageId;

    public void setImageId(int id) {
        mImageId = id;

    public String getTitle() {
        return mTitle;

    public void setTitle(String title) { 
        mTitle = title;

    public int getYearReleased() {
        return mYearReleased;

    public void setYearReleased(int year) {
        mYearReleased = year;
