Is there a difference between "Nous mangerons dans 30 minutes" and "Nous mangeons dans 30 minutes"? My understanding is that it's a subtle difference (e.g, "we will sit down to eat 30 minutes from now" vs. "we're sitting down to eat 30 minutes from now"), but both ultimately refer to the beginning of the action in the future.
Strictly correct to use the future tense "mangerons" but the present (also futur proche ) is often used for an imminent future event.
