There's a short video attached to the article with a sneak of the carnival mentioned, plus Hugh talking to the crew. There really isn't much sound.
Wolverine Hugh Jackman roams city at night
March 01, 2008 12:00am
HUGH Jackman clawed his way through Sydney's urban jungle last night, sinking his teeth into filming for his new movie Wolverine.
The filming of the first spin-off from the hugely successful X-Men series gave the normally quiet streets of Glebe in Sydney's Inner-West a taste of Hollywood on the back of the Aussie actor's star power.
Glebe's Federal Park - one of Sydney's off-leash dog areas - was the setting for the one-night shoot.
Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness were seen laughing and chatting with crew and extras as they inspected the purpose-built carnival set. However, Jackman disappointed bystanders by not ripping off his shirt and getting his claws out.
The carnival scene was fitting for Mardi Gras eve but the storyline was set in the 1970s. In what appeared to be a flashback sequence, extras wore afros, flairs and bad sideburns as they rode the ferris-wheel.
