This tense can be used
1 with a point in time to indicate that the action will begin before this time and continue after it.

2 with or without a time to express a future without intention. In this way it is very like the present continuous, but it is not, like the present continuous, restricted in time and is a more detached and casual way of expressing the future. It often implies that the action
will occur in the ordinary course of events or as a matter of routine.

(Except when used as in I, above, this tense can usually be replaced by one of the other future forms, though the exact shade of meaning may then be lost.)

Put the verbs in brackets into the future continuous tense.
