    We don't know about you, but our big Friday plan involves hustling to the movies and settling into a viewing of Equals. Directed by Drake Doremus of Like Crazy acclaim, the film sees Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult as lovers living in a futuristic society. That's a problem, because said society has outlawed emotions, making the whole romance thing a major no-no. Kind of makes conducting a transatlantic marriage seem fairly minor, right?

    The lovebirds still manage to have sex, though, which makes Equals the latest sci-fi film to prove that science can be sexy. Those nerds are really onto something.

    We did some digging and found some other seriously steamy scenes captured in space, futuristic dystopian settings, and other sci-fi environs. If you're hot for Han Solo and Barbarella, come along.

    Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) slip away from the world to get naked. No dialogue necessary — but then again, it is a Keanu movie.

    How do we get that glowing blue light into our bedroom? It just makes everything seem more seductive — not that undercover lovers Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult need any help in that department.

    Under the Skin (2014)
    Everything's going swimmingly until Scarlett Johansson's character pulls away so she can investigate her genitals. Her suitor (Michael Moreland) caught a lucky break; she's actually an alien who seduces and kills Scottish men.

    The Martian (2015)
    This one's more sweet than sexy, but it's nice to see that an astronaut can still get some action in all that gear. Here, Beth Johanssen (Kate Mara) smooches Chris Beck (Sebastian Stan) before he ventures out on a dangerous mission to save Matt Damon.
