Registering your new Custom Post Type

<?php
function my_custom_post_types() {
	$args = array(
		'label' => 'Movies',
		'taxonomies' => array('category'),
		'public' => true,
		'exclude_from_search' => true,
		'show_ui' => true,
		'show_in_menu' => true,
		'rewrite' => array('slug'=>'movies'),
		'capability_type' => 'post',
		'has_archive' => true,
		'hierarchical' => true,
		'has_archive' => true,
		'menu_position' => null,
		'supports' => array('title','editor','author','thumbnail')
	);
	register_post_type( 'movies', $args );
}
add_action( 'init', 'my_custom_post_types' );

?>

Adding Custom Taxonomy to Custom Post Type

This code needs to be added right under register_post_type.

$labels = array{
		'name' => _x( 'Genre', 'taxonomy general name'),
		'singular_name' => _x( 'Genre', 'taxonomy singular name'),
		'search_items' => _x( 'Search Genres'),
		'popular_items' => _x( 'Popular Genres'),
		'all_items' => _x( 'All Genres'),
		'parent_item' => null,
		'parent_item_colon' => null,
		'edit_item' => _x( 'Edit Genre'),
		'update_item' => _x( 'Update Genre'),
		'add_new_item' => _x( 'Add Genre'),
		'new_item_name' => _x( 'New Genre Name'),
		'seperate_items_with_commas' => _x( 'Seperate genres with commas'),
		'add_or_remove_items' => _x( 'Add or remove genres'),
		'choose_from_most_used' => _x( 'Choose from the most used genres'),
		'not_found' => _x( 'No genres found.'),
		'menu_name' => _x( 'Genres'),
	);

		$args = array(
			'hierarchical' => false,
			'labels' => $labels,
			'show_ui' => true,
			'show_admin_column' => true,
			'query_var' => true,
			'rewrite' => array( 'slug', 'genre' ),
		);

	register_taxonomy( 'genre', 'movies', $args );
	}

Single Post Template

<?php
/**
 * The template for displaying all single posts and attachments
 */

get_header(); ?>

<div id="page" role="main">

<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
		<header>
			<h2 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
		</header>
		<?php do_action( 'foundationpress_post_before_entry_content' ); ?>
		<div class="entry-content">

		<?php
			if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) :
				the_post_thumbnail();
			endif;
		?>

		<?php the_content(); ?>
		</div>
		<footer>
			<?php wp_link_pages( array('before' => '<nav id="page-nav"><p>' . __( 'Pages:', 'foundationpress' ), 'after' => '</p></nav>' ) ); ?>
			<p><?php the_tags(); ?></p>
		</footer>
<?php endwhile;?>

</div>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

Archive Template

<?php
/**
 * The template for displaying archive pages
 *
 * Used to display archive-type pages if nothing more specific matches a query.
 * For example, puts together date-based pages if no date.php file exists.
 *
 * If you'd like to further customize these archive views, you may create a
 * new template file for each one. For example, tag.php (Tag archives),
 * category.php (Category archives), author.php (Author archives), etc.
 *
 * @link https://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

get_header(); ?>

<div id="page" role="main">
	<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>

		<?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
		<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
			<?php get_template_part( 'template-parts/content', get_post_format() ); ?>
		<?php endwhile; ?>

		<?php else : ?>
			<?php get_template_part( 'template-parts/content', 'none' ); ?>

		<?php endif; // End have_posts() check. ?>=
</div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

<?php
/**
 * The default template for displaying content
 *
 * Used for both single and index/archive/search.
 */

?>

<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class('blogpost-entry'); ?>>
	<header>
		<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
	</header>
	<div class="entry-content">

		<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" class="button" style="float: right; padding: 10px; font-size: 20px!important;">Read More</a>
	</div>
	<footer>
		<?php $tag = get_the_tags(); if ( $tag ) { ?><p><?php the_tags(); ?></p><?php } ?>
