"You need word of mouth for this type of film and that's what this weekend was all about," said Sony distrivution head Rory Bruer, who granted it's a "crowded field."

What's the meaning of "crowded field"?

Does it just mean that the field(the movie market) is flooded with many new films?

    Could you give some more context? What was the title of the movie and what was it about? There is a possibility that Bruer was also making a joke. Oct 12, 2015 at 10:20
  • If you are talking about the same movie as in the previous question, please edit the question.

Yes, that's exactly what it means.

Additionally, if the movie had some connection with agriculture for example it would be a joke as well. We'd need context to know if a pun was intended.

field - A particular branch of study or sphere of activity or interest. Oxford Dictionaries

  • Why only agriculture? "Field" is a general word...eg, he worked in the field of molecular biology.

    I mean that it would be a pun if the movie was about agriculture. If the movie is about molecular biology then there is no pun -- it is just the general meaning of the word. I've changed the wording of my answer to make that clearer. Oct 12, 2015 at 10:14
