Blade Runner 2049
"Bladerunner 2049" follows the strange erotic journey between K, his virtual girlfriend Joi, and Mariette, who is hired as a surrogate that Joi can use as a means to achieve sexual intimacy with K. What starts from a kiss, leads to an uncanny yet sexy sequence where the trio becomes in sync with each other.
Planet of the Apes
When it’s time for astronaut George Taylor to part ways with chimpanzee psychologist Dr. Zira in the original “Planet of the Apes,” they do so with a goodbye smooch. While this could be seen as a weird sign of romance, one could also interpret it as a much more profound symbol of their friendship and acceptance for each other despite their differences.
"Her" follows the complicated but beautiful relationship between Theodore and Samantha — a human greeting card designer and a virtual AI assistant, respectively. Though they never literally kiss, the scene in which they discuss their physical desires in bed is incredibly intimate because of the actors’ amazing performances.
