Lake Macquarie News have posted some more images of the X-men Origins shoot that took place on Blacksmith’s Beach, showing the mock up WW2 scenes, Hugh Jackman, safety inspectors and soldiers running in the sand.

WW2 on Blacksmiths Beach June 11th, 2008, posted by FofR
Looks like IESB’s report that filming had wrapped was a little premature, just yesterday the X-men Origins production team were simulating war scenes at Blacksmiths Beach. A group of Flickr photographers in the area gathered to take their shots and meet Hugh Jackman. From the pictures it looks like WWII will feature, though it’s unclear how much the movie shall focus on this aspect of Wolverine’s past.

From Wikipedia - Wolverine’s brief history, to fill some people in:
During World War II, Logan teams with Captain America versus HYDRA [Captain America cameo!?], and continues a career as a soldier-of-fortune/adventurer. Logan works for the First Canadian Parachute Battalion and the CIA before being recruited for Team X.
As a member of Team X, Logan is given false memory implants. He continues on the team, until he is able to break free of the mental control and joins the Canadian Defense Ministry. Logan is subsequently kidnapped by Weapon X, where he remains captive and experimented on, until his rescue by the Winter Soldier, after which he returns to the Canadian wilderness.

The folks over at Goliath were on hand in Glenorchy to catch the action as it took place, and were kind enough to post their pictures online,
During our trip through New Zealand we got a hint telling us the location where the fourth X-Men movie, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman was currently filmed.
Thanks to another hint we found our way to the set on the day a house built for the movie was to be blown up with explosives.
Hugh Jackman Pictures March 6th, 2008, posted by FofR
More budding photographs have been snapping their cameras at Hugh Jackman whilst on set for the Wolverine movie. This time Flynet have posted some shots of our movie star looking jovial, some possible spoilers here if you can read into the clues, but mostly just hunky images with large watermarks. I wouldn’t get too excited.
First look at Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth March 4th, 2008, posted by FofR
We’ve just got our first pictures showing Liev Schreiber donning claws and green torn shirt as Sabretooth. I’ve included the best shot below, the rest are rather candid and unappealing, but you can see the full gallery at Just Jared, there’s also a couple of shots of Hugh Jackman throwing an apple in similar attire.
