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.

Equals (2016)
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.

Barbarella (1968)
According to this campy cult classic, one day, sex will be performed by taking pills and pressing palms together. Mark Hand, a.k.a. The Catchman (Ugo Tognazzi), insists on doing it the old-fashioned way with Barbarella (Jane Fonda), however.

The Fifth Element (1997)
Bruce Willis (Korben Dallas) and Milla Jovovich (Leeloo) as lovers on a spacecraft? It shouldn't work, but strangely, it does.

P.S. How much money do you think was blown on hair dye?

Star Trek (2009)
Let's not forget that Spock (Zachary Quinto) is still a green-blooded man in need of some loving' with Uhuru (Zoe Saldana). If the Enterprise is a-rockin', don't come a-knockin'.

Total Recall (2012)
Kate Beckinsale's then-husband, Len Wiseman, directed her as Colin Farrell's beautiful (but ultimately backstabbing) wife in the 2012 reboot.

Avatar (2009)
Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and Jake (Sam Worthington) decide to mate, paving the way for some love-making. James Cameron, you sly dog.

Ex Machina (2015)
No sex. No nudity. Just Oscar Isaac rocking his body to perfection. Play. Repeat. Play. Repeat.

The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Sorry, but nothing's sexier than Han Solo and Princess Leia's flirtatious bickering. Nope. Not even her bikini.
