There are a lot of good-looking folks working in the movies these days, but it turns out two sci-fi stars top the list of the sexiest on earth.

The U.K. publication Empire Magazine has picked Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Emma Watson (Harry Potter) as “The Sexiest Movie Stars” on a list of 50 men and 50 women. Cumberbatch isn’t much of a shocker, though Watson is a bit of a surprise. But her wicked funny role in This Is The End shows the gal definitely has range.

On the gentleman’s side, Cumberbatch was joined by fellow sci-fi vets Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) to round out the top three. All three actors are at the top of their game, though it’s nice to see Cumberbatch get the win.

Sci-fi stars also make up the top three sexiest women, with Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) joining Watson at the top. Again, that’s a tough one to rank.

You can check out the full list over at Empire, but first let us know who you’d rank No. 1?
