Tinashe,

It looks like you've got some extra code in there that the challenge isn't expecting, and you just need to remove that...I've copied and pasted your code below with comments to show you the two sections of extra code that need to be removed in order for you to pass the task.

<?php 
$movie=array();
$movie['title']="The Empire Strikes Back";
$movie['year']="1980";
$movie['director']="Irvin Kershner";
$movie['imdb_rating']="8.8";
$movie['imdb_ranking']="11";
?>

// BEGIN REMOVE 1 ///////////////////////////////////////
<h1><?php echo $movie['title'].' ('.$movie['year'].')';?></h1>
  print_r($movie); //this should print the array with the text: he code is this: Back to the Future (1985) Director Robert Zemeckis  in it. 
?>
<html>
// STOP REMOVE 1 ///////////////////////////////////////

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"];?> (<?php echo $movie["year"];?>)</h1>
<table>
<tr>
<th>Director</th>
<td>
<?php echo $movie['director'];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Rating</th>
<td><?php echo $movie['imdb_rating'];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Ranking</th>
<td><?php echo $movie['imdb_ranking'];?></td>
</tr>
</table>

// BEGIN REMOVE 2 ///////////////////////////////////////
  </html>
// STOP REMOVE 2 ///////////////////////////////////////

After you remove that extra code that you added, you will pass the task just fine (the rest of your code is correct). It will look like the following once you've cleaned it:

<?php 
$movie=array();
$movie['title']="The Empire Strikes Back";
$movie['year']="1980";
$movie['director']="Irvin Kershner";
$movie['imdb_rating']="8.8";
$movie['imdb_ranking']="11";
?>

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"];?> (<?php echo $movie["year"];?>)</h1>
<table>
<tr>
<th>Director</th>
<td>
<?php echo $movie['director'];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Rating</th>
<td><?php echo $movie['imdb_rating'];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Ranking</th>
<td><?php echo $movie['imdb_ranking'];?></td>
</tr>
</table>
