Android Build a Weather App (2015) Hooking Up the Model to the View Using Butter Knife for Views

Task 2 of 3. Previous best answers not working. Perhaps because of ButterKnife replacing Inject w/ Bind.

It is not recognising the @InjectView(R.id.movieTitle) TextView mTitleLabel; even when outside the on create method and within the main public class.

MovieActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.ImageView;

public class MovieActivity extends Activity {

    @InjectView(R.id.movieTitle) TextView mTitleLabel;

    @Override
      public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
          setContentView(R.layout.activity_movie);
          ButterKnife.inject(this);
        // The rest of the code is omitted for brevity :)
      }
}
activity_movie.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="@android:color/white" >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/movieTitle"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:textSize="32sp"
        android:text=""
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:layout_centerVertical="true" />

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/movieImage"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_above="@id/movieTitle" />

    <LinearLayout
        android:orientation="horizontal"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_below="@id/movieTitle"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:id="@+id/linearLayout">

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text=""
            android:id="@+id/textView"
            android:layout_weight="1"
            android:gravity="left" />

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text=""
            android:id="@+id/textView2"
            android:layout_weight="1"
            android:gravity="right" />

    </LinearLayout>

</RelativeLayout>

I took a look at the challenge. It's accepting the current annotation @BindView though it's inconsistent with with asking for ButterKnife.inject() instead of ButterKnife.bind() in the first step.

Thank you :)
