Thanks to a movie where popular Chinese actress Liu Yifei plays a goddess embroiled in a complicated love story spanning hundreds of years, Alibaba Pictures has for the first time posted a profit for its content production segment after consecutive years of heavy losses.

Once Upon a Time, based on bestselling fantasy novel Three Lifetimes, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms, made 534 million yuan (US$84.5 million) at the Chinese box office, helping Alibaba Pictures’ content production segment earn a profit of 4.1 million yuan in 2017, up from losses of 243.5 million the previous year.

However, the company as a whole recorded a net loss of 950 million yuan, primarily due to high marketing expenses incurred in promoting its Tao Piao Piao online ticketing platform, the company said in its earnings statement.
