The film focuses on the life of jazz icon Miles Davis and is set in 1970s New York.

Referring to the actor’s fake injuries, the filmmakers joked: “You should see the other guy.”

One concerned fan tweeted: “Ewan, you look thin! Is it for the character or you really just lost some weight? Awww.”

Some fans also made jokes about the star’s new shoulder-length hair cut, especially grown for the role.

Fahim Ahad tweeted: “Return of the Jedi mullet.”

Miles Ahead stars Don Cheadle – who also directs the film – as Miles Davis and McGregor as music journalist Dave Brill.
