Plex doesn't download non-USA "Originally Available" Dates from IMDB

When sorting by Date Released, Plex relies on the "Originally Available" field and sorts anything without an entry in this field at the end of the list.

It's easy enough to add the data myself for a few movies, but at least half of my library is missing this data. I am using the Plex Movie agent.

It looks like Plex is not downloading that data for any movie that has a non-USA release date listed as the main release date in IMDB.

For instance, Plex downloads the date for this film:

But not this film:

Is there a fix for this?
