Atomic Blonde is a 2017 American spy thriller set in 1989 Berlin just prior to the collapse of the Wall and starring Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 operative sent to retrieve a list of agents. Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, the film was directed by David Leitch, the former stunt performer and co-director of John Wick. The cast includes James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella, John Goodman, and Toby Jones.
The following weapons were used in the film Atomic Blonde:
A Stechkin APS is used by Yuri Bakhtin (Jóhannes Jóhannesson) to kill James Gascoigne (Sam Hargrave), setting the plot into motion. Oddly, characters claim that a Soviet 7.62mm round was recovered from the body, despite the APS being chambered in the 9x18mm Makarov.

Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) owns a Browning Hi-Power that is very briefly seen as she prepares herself to go to the meeting with their superiors. Judging from the external extractor and old-style ring hammer, it appears to be a highly desirable 1960s "T" Series Browning Hi-Power.

The Makarov PM, presumably both East German and Russian models, is used by various characters, including Lorraine (Charlize Theron), KGB agents, and East German Volkspolizei. Several suppressed Makarov pistols are seen in the climax.

With a brief glance at the Makarov's black grip, Lorraine is beginning to realize that she got into the wrong car.

She greeted Percival with her just acquired Makarov after a turbulent car ride.
Later, Lorraine has an idea how to surprise the coming down KGB agents.
Lorraine chambers the Makarov. Note the excellent trigger discipline; while the trigger discipline technique existed in the 1980s, it can be considered to have been a rare occurrence back then and its depiction rather reflects the trend of 2010s media to depict the modern strict trigger discipline in rather historically anachronistic contexts.
Shortly after, she starts her flanking maneuver with the Makarov at the ready as the apartment brawl begins.

West-German police officers are armed with SIG-Sauer P226. Lorraine (Charlize Theron) also uses a P226 several times, most notably to kill "Satchel".

Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A British policeman carries a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine gun with a Navy trigger group. The Navy trigger group is not an anachronism as the first Navy-style trigger groups were made in 1982.
