I think they should be far more concerned about not making any money rather than worrying if Sir Ian's schedule will come into conflict. As much as I love X-Men, there is no denying that Hobbit 3 will completely obliterate its box office on July 18th (and if I'm not mistaken, films take in the highest portion of earnings during the first weekend). I'm a little surprised they haven't announced a new date, and I wonder if it's a matter of pride (moving would mean them admitting a certain amount of defeat) or if they're waiting to see how production goes along before determining if they can bump it up or push it back.
