Anthropoid is a 2016 coproduction war thriller directed by Sean Ellis and based on true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich. The two key Czechoslovak paratroopers sent to perform from the United Kingdom to perform this mission are played by Cillian Murphy as Jozef Gabčík and Jamie Dornan as Jan Kubiš. This topic has already been treated in the Czech film Atentát (1963) and also partly in Sokolovo (1974).

One of the German soldiers is seen using a Bergmann MP18 submachine gun with a straight magazine well.
The MP40 is used by some SS soldiers.
Sten Mk II

The main battle rifle for the German forces is the Karabiner 98k.
