1. 3D-BlurayRental.com

If there's a movie that's been released on 3D Blu-ray, 3D-BlurayRental.com will have it at once. This movies-by-mail service charges between $4.99 and $7.99 for most rentals, two-way postage included. After you receive your disc, you have seven days to watch the movie. If it's not postmarked by that seventh day, the service will charge an extra $2 per day until you send it back.
