"are being distributed" = "will be distributed"

or, "are going to be distributed"

I beg to differ

I think "are being" is not the correct answer here.

"Will be" should be used instead, since the distribution has not taken place untill next week.

首先,这是一道钻牛角尖的题!!!
ARE BEING 是很好的答案,但WILL BE OR ARE GOING TO BE 也绝对没错!
ARE BEING, 1是用进行时表达很快将要发生的事,这种用法比WILL BE 来得形象生动,特别是在指很快将发生的事时.当然用哪个,有时也看说话者的态度和意图. 如果说话者是要让大家不要急,,东西马上会FA发,他会说: THEY ARE BEING........ 如果只是想说明放发这个事实.就会说THER WILL BE....
HE'S  COMING SOON 他很快就会来了.
HE WILL COME SOON他很快就会来了.
但听到第一句会让人仿佛看到他就正在来的路上!

I can not agree that "being distrbuted" is the same as "will be distributed" nor "he's coming soon" is simialr,in terms of grammer,to "he will be coming soon" .

Present tense can not be the same as future tense, whether in direct or indirect speech.

being distributed =the act of distribution is presently happening.
will be distributed=the act of distribution has not even started.

He is coming soon=>"coming" is a gerund modified by "soon".
He will be coming soon=>"coming" is a verb.
Though the two sentences may convey the same meaning, the are of different grammatical structure.

Sorry for my honesty, buddy. But  your grammar really need to be worked on.
The little coming in"he is coming" is absolutely not a gerund, it's a present participle, a divice used to form continous tense. Same is the "coming" in "he will be coming". Keep this in mind:  gerunds (infinitives also )can never be used as a verb in any case.
P.S. Did I say they are the same grammatical strucyure in my post?

I'll appreciate it  if you could  take some time to go over English grammar and get a clear idea about the  difference between gerund and present participle, will you? Good luck!

I stand corrected

My mistake,"coming" is not a gerund.

Serve me right to shoot my mouth without checking my fact.

However, I still can not agree that being distrbuted is the same as will be distributed,.
