In 2014, he starred with Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet in the box office hit "Divergent," the film adaptation of the sci-fi bestseller of the same name. He reprises his role in "Insurgent," the second film in the trilogy, which is currently in worldwide release.

Upcoming, Courtney will star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the sci-fi actioner "Terminator: Genisys," opening this summer. He then joins "Suicide Squad," the action adventure based on the DC Comic, in which he stars with Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie, under the direction of David Ayer.
