I have been looking up different actors and movies and have noticed an I after some of the release years. For example: 2013/I Elysium (post-production). Could someone please tell me what that means?

That's the roman numeral I for "one". Whenever there are two or more movies with the same title released in the same year, they are assigned roman numerals, in order of when the titles were added to the database, to make it possible to distinguish between them. In this case, there is also another movie listed on IMDb as Elysium (2013/II) -- see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2813434/ for its entry.
