Use Netflix Saved Function to Automate Your DVD Queue

Nowadays the spotlight is on Netflix streaming offerings (rightly so). But its legacy mailing service is still useful for getting the latest releases. 

Netflix mail subscribers order titles in a queue, which is where they line up discs to be sent automatically.  Netflix's Saved feature allows subscribers to add unreleased titles.  As the titles become available, they'll automatically transfer to the active queue.  The Saved area also has an Availability feature, which shows when the title will be available. (If the release date is unknown, you'll see "Future release" in this column.)

This is convenient because you can spot films currently in the theater or in Netflix's Future Releases section, add them to Saved, and they'll pop up for viewing eventually without further intervention by you.  The only caveat is the title will move into last position in your queue, so if you want it sooner you'll have to manually reorder titles.
