I hear that one of the recently filmed IMAX films will be both in 3D and also include footage of giant humboldt squid. keep an eye out for it! Its called Deep Sea 3d!

Link to movie website - http://www.imax.com/deepsea/

Director/director of photography: Howard Hall; Writers: Howard Hall, Toni Myers, Graeme Ferguson;

Here is the blurb from the above IMAX site regarding humboldt squid:

The elusive Humboldt Squid—who also goes by "Jumbo"—is a mysterious and vicious carnivore, and tales of his destructive, rock star-like antics are legendary (even sailors balk at the squid's excesses). While some claim the rep is a bad rap, others maintain that the aggressive predator is just that…thanks to its size (up to six feet long), powerful arms and tentacles, superior underwater vision and a razor-sharp beak that can rip prey (and trusting co-stars) to shreds. Their rapid changes in skin color also make them a challenge to lighting designers. While not on-set, their whereabouts remain primarily a mystery—they prefer depths far beyond the reach of most undersea paparazzi.
