What's the saucer? (my theory)
We all remember the ominous saucer hovering above the waterfall first shown in the teaser back in December, but little seen since.
Or has it?
There's a scene shown only in the UK/International trailer of the Prometheus crew entering the temple complex. They are entering via an opening -- what appears to be a slit, maybe 15-20 feet tall, around the circumference of the mound.
In this scene, note that the base of the mound is apparently supported by toothed/gear-like pedestals. Also note the textures on the ceiling.
Note the similarity to the toothed/gear-like protuberances that are visible when the ground begins to shift and open up underneath Shaw.
Finally, we've all been puzzled by the sandstorm which appears from the direction of the temple complex -- and which lifts someone (Shaw) off her feet and deposits her some distance away.
the temple mound/complex. We are seeing the bottom of it, hovering above the waterfall. Its propulsion system is what creates the sandstorm. The pedestals are retractable, "landing gear" like devices. The ceiling textures could very well match the complex textures we see on the bottom of the saucer (if you look at a HD still of that scene, you can see them).
If you still need convincing, look closely again at the image of the saucer hovering over the waterfall. See the cliff-like structure just barely visible thru the mist, at screen right, beneath the saucer? I believe this is the wall that surrounds the temple complex. I believe some kind of life-giving/terraforming process is occurring here.
The mutant being seen overlooking this waterfall in the official trailer is an observer/initiator or participant in this process.
Apologies if this has been noted or speculated upon before.

Some of that came up in "The Temple" thread. You might want to check on the discussion there.
It has been speculated upon, but it takes nothing away from your finding. We don't expect everyone new here to know every single thread in existence on this forum; so no worries whatsoever dude. But I do have to close this thread and promote the other one. Very good theory and I hope to hear more from ya!
I wanna go home and party.
