Awesome.

I am sure they were there. As for the three different minerals discovered, assuming that Moon was once part of Earth, I woud be sceptic.

Hi, is there anything wrong in these sentences?

This is a collection consisting of the four movies.

Short summary
A triple not to-be-missed film collection featuring all three IRON MAN movies!

Long summary
Iron Man 1-3, the complete collection in one place! In Iron Man, after being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. In Iron Man 2, now that Tony Stark’s super hero secret has been revealed to the world, he must face his most dangerous enemy. In Iron Man 3, when Tony Stark finds his entire world reduced to rubble, he must use all his ingenuity to survive and protect those he loves.


I'm still trying to figure out where is the fourth movie, to include all the four of them.

I would like to enlighten more with TFD:
build up
1. To develop or increase in stages or by degrees: built up the business; building up my endurance for the marathon.
2. To accumulate or collect: sediment building up on the ocean floor.
3. To bolster: build up the product with a massive ad campaign; built up my hopes after the interview.
4. To fill up (an area) with buildings.
It sems to be that to construct would be the ideal term to replace this phrasal verb, if you wanted.
