You have to know what you're looking for, but there are some recognizable Gwinnett County sites in the trailer for the coming Adam Sandler movie.

Named "Blended," the film was shot at various sites in and around Gwinnett in mid-2013, including Buford and Lake Lanier. The trailer is now available on YouTube and other media outlets (see the attached video.)

One particularly recognizable location: the Hooters restaurant in Lawrenceville, near Highway 316. This scene also prominently features co-star Drew Barrymore.

Other locations that appear recognizable include athletic crowd scenes (believed to be in the Lake Lanier area).

Scenes also were filmed at a pharmacy in Buford, and at Dick's Sporting Goods at the Mall of Georgia. But they do not appear to be in the trailer.

The movie is scheduled for a Memorial Day weekend release, according to the trailer.

-- Did you see any of the filming for "Blended" in the Gwinnett area? Will you see the movie when it reaches theaters?
