There are two tenses in English: past and present. The future is an aspect. This is because we use modal verbs to express this. Will go, going to go, will be going, will have been going, will have gone, etc. note the kinds of phrases used with the future: by this time next week, etc. See also may/might go, may/might be going, etc. The future aspect helps us talk about the likelihood of something happening - from highly likely (I will go tomorrow), to less likely (I might go tomorrow). You can mix the future with the other aspects, such as the perfect or imperfective (continuous) too: I will have seen this film 5 times this week (by tomorrow, which remains "this week" and therefore unfinished time). English has no future tense like other languages, such as French or Spanish.
