Ah, here we go. This one is a bit silly!

Your code worked just fine to pass Task 3 for me when I edited the spacing you had around your echo statement for the title.

You have:

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

Where you'll notice there a space BEFORE the PHP block that echos your title, and there is NO space after that block and before the opening parenthesis. This is what's causing the task to fail. Simple error to make!

So, if you edit your code to the following, you will move along to Task 4!

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

(notice now the space before the first PHP block is gone, and a space has been back added AFTER it)

Happy coding!

Hmm I'll copy and paste your code in the challenge and run through it to try and see what error it's giving you. I should have something for you momentarily!
