I used to have the DVD service and I added current movies in my queue so I would get them when they were released. I just renewed my membership but changed to streaming. Is there a way to add current movies to the Instant Queue?
No, because currently you can only add items to your Instant Queue if they're available for streaming. While anything in theaters now is virtually guaranteed to come out on DVD in a few months, the same can't be said for streaming.
Unless and until Hollywood gets its act together and allows everything to be streamed, I expect the status quo to remain.
