    so, who is he right?

    The passive is used more in formal writing than in casual speech; but a style guide will tell you to avoid the passive whenever you can. It's often a sign of bad, sloppy writing.

    You are right. The passive can be used in the future, just as easily as in the past or present.

    That movie will be shown on Channel 12 tonight.
